I found some software on the web that can easily fix the shortcut virus problem. I’m using USB Fix for this tutorial because it works great and it is absolutely free. Follow the steps below to remove shortcut virus using USB Fix software:
- Download, install and launch USB fix (If your antivirus showing virus in the software so please disable it for a few minutes).
- Close all programs running in the taskbar (Because the software kill all running programs and you may lose data).
- Connect all of your shortcut virus infected USBs with computer, and Choose Clean.
- Wait.. And virus from all connected USBs goes automatically fix.
It automatically cleans the shortcut virus from all USBs and don’t forget to restart your computer after using this tool because it makes changes in windows directory and until you restart your computer, it will not work properly.
Conclusion: You have to understand that a malware infection is only a term when we refer to adware, spyware, worms, trojans, rootkits, computer viruses, scareware, ransomware etc. Malware infections can occur in various scenarios so this where UsbFix can come in handy: it can stop/remove various infections and work as a prevention tool. With other words, because of the frequent updates, it is one of the best tools in this area and for most people will do an excellent job.
