I have a Windows 8.1 laptop which I bought a couple of week ago. I accidentally installed a software named Keygen.exe after which any usb flash drive I enter , the folders shows as shortcuts and all the exe files on my pc shows as shortcuts. I'm unable to use any of my apps. I thought that I can clear my pc data completely but I've got a lot precious data which I won't get back and I can't get any such flash drive which can store that much of data. Please help me with this. I'll be very thankful.

Hello,
# Download USB Fix
  • Launch it, 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, sd cards external drives, etc...)
  • Once you're ready, click "OK".
  • While cleaning, you will lose access to your desktop, but this is normal.

The numbers of analyzed and infected elements are displayed.

# Copy/paste the report here.

USBFix should also fix those shortcuts.
