Anytime I plug in my USB drive to my laptop, a shortcut named Removable Disk (8GB) will be created and all files and folders on USB drive will go inside that shortcut but they are not hidden and I can access them.

I format USB drive and scan it. This will make USB drive clean but next time I connect it there is the same problem again. I think there is a problem with my laptop.

I scanned laptop with Windows Defender, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Hitman Pro. No virus or malware found. I don't know what else I can do to get rid of this virus.

Please help me.

Thank you

# Download USB Fix
  • It will launch automatically, and a shortcut will be created on your desktop.

  • Choose "Clean" option.
  • A pop-up will follow :
    Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, external drives, etc...)
  • Once you're ready, click "OK".
  • While cleaning, you will loose access to your desktop, but this is normal.

The numbers of analysed and infected elements are displayed.

# Copy/paste the report here.
Its working..
