Hello,
# Download USB Fix on your computer, and launch it.
# It will start automatically, and a shortcut will be created on your desktop.
# Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, external drives, etc...) Do not open them.
# Choose " Deletion " option.

#The computer will re-start, and it may be longer than usually.

# UsbFix will display a message at re-start.

# Click "OK" to start cleaning.
# Copy/paste the report here.

Not my area of expertise, but ...

My curiosity would ask "Where is the shortcut pointing to?" - no dont open it, but right click and check the properties page. But that is accademic, and not really needed.

Scan your whole computer with the pen drive connected with a good anti-virus. This should sort out any viruses.

Also scan any machines the pen drive has been plugged into, or you run the risk of "catching" it again and again.
