USB Drives, especially those which we used on public computers such as in schools, Internet cafes, hotels etc, are very susceptible to contamination by viruses present on other users of the machine devices. One of the most common is the “shortcut virus” that creates many unwanted icons on your USB device while hidden files that really matter; hindering or even preventing, the access to them.
The first thing to notice if you had installed the shortcut virus in your system is that it will be not get removed by your normal antivirus scanning it’s somehow stubborn. Shortcut virus usually creates the shortcut files, for example, Notepad.shortcut etc. So if you see such shortcut files in you Computer or Pendrive then this are the sure signs that you computer or pen drive contains the stubborn Shortcut virus. This is a kind of virus which will not get detected by a normal antivirus.
How to Remove Shortcut Virus from USB Drives & PC
Today I am going to share four simple tricks to remove the shortcut virus from your computer or Pen drive automatically. You can remove Shortvirus by using your command prompt or by installing a software.
#1 Method: Using CMD To Remove Shortcut Virus
Step 1. To remove your shortcut virus with the help of your command prompt system, you need to follow the steps ahead.
Step 2. Open Command Prompt by pressing Windows + R and Enter “CMD” in the box and hit enter.
Step 3. Now enter the following in your Command Prompt “attrib :*.* /d /s -h -r -s” without quotes ‘Your USB drive letter‘ must be replaced with your own drive letter. Suppose your flash drive is on Drive F so you must imply the following command “attrib f:*.* /d /s -h -r -s” without quotes and hit enter.
Step 4. Now wait for some time until CMD finishes the command, once it’s completed successfully the shortcut virus will be removed from your PC.
