How to solve the Shortcut Virus on PC AND PENDRIVE?

How to solve the Shortcut Virus on PC AND PENDRIVE? Topic: The sisters cafe reading
July 18, 2019 / By Hebe
Question: I've did alot of things. Some people solved it with cmd and I tried, but it didn't work. Some people did it with some programme which also didn't work. I tried formatting it but the virus is still there! I don't know whether it's from my computer or pendrive. There's this one time I went to print some things at a Cyber Cafe and when I went home, I discovered that I got the virus.. and then I got a new computer which also had the shortcut virus. Last night, I tried and plugged in my sister's pendrive whether it's my PC who made it and I guess, it's a yes bcos my sister's pendrive now has the shortcut virus. Please please please help me solve this. I can't scan it and delete it with my antivirus because it just wont detect it and yeah.. I'm so sad. I don't want to buy a new pendrive :( Help me.

So, you took 2 illegally downloaded songs on an unprotected computer, transferred them to your girlfriend's computer via USB with autorun enabled. Now you have 2 infected computers and a fragged USB drive. I never would have seen that coming. I don't think yo should own a computer that is connected to the internet. You are putting everyone in your e-mail address book at risk as well as any computer in the house that maybe networked to yours.

Well, it's pretty hard to tell if it's cleaned from your computer or not. I wouldn't count on it. Do you know someone who knows computers? If so, have them wipe your computer and re-install your operating system (after saving the files you want). Also, you MUST set up an Antivirus program. I would recommend avast. It's free and works very well. If you don't know how to do some of these things, get someone to help you. It's important that the virus is completely gone.

Virus scans are as useful as a match on the bottom of a holler pond. Hackers have bypassed your virus protection and now infect whole networks.

Update your anti-virus and scan the hard drive. Use a new pen for a while. Get the pen with a virus on it scanned at a good pc repair shop.

Repair Microsoft Office. Do this via "Programs and Features" or "Add or Remove Programs". Find Microsoft Office in the list, open it, then you have the option to repair. Once you do that, it should work OK. Repairing Microsoft Office does not harm or delete your files. I have only tried this on Windows 7 with Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2010. Good Luck!
