hello,
my flash drive caught virus and the folders in it had turned to shortcuts and they can't be opened.whenever I click any any of the shortcut-turned-folders a message appears in a dialog box saying windows cannot find 'D:\.Trashes\b3fdadef.com'.Make sure you type the name correctly,and then try again.Please help me so that the shortcuts are gone and I can view the files again.

Hello,
# Download USB Fix here
  • 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 analyzed and infected elements are displayed.

# Copy/paste the report here.
