    Hey Without waiting.. I am giving you the best method of removing shortcut virus form flash drive.

    Process --

    * Open CMD (Command Prompt)
    * now copy paste this code--
    attrib -h -r -s /s /d D:\*.*
    Note:-- Here " D " is you flash drive letter. So you must change this With your Drive letter.

    Hit ENTER after pasting this code. Enjoy... Now the shortcut virus has gone.. :D

    this don't remove the virus....this will only show the files...actually this virus affects the rundll32.exe file in system32 folder and antivirus don't has the right to append the system files so this virus is not determined by many antivirus

    Yes You are Right that it doesn't Remove the virus just show the content. But this is the only way to get your files successfully and Later you can format the Flash Drive after getting your files. Though if your pen drive have too important files then what will you do ? You need this Method in that situation.

    Currently there is no way to access your files if it is infected by shortcut virus. Except This one and only Method.
    And for your kind information Quick Heal Was the only one Antivirus that could clean the virus and made your files accessible without any Problem.
    But now Quick Heal is Poor antivirus after the New Update came. It doesn't perform Well and also doesn't Clean the Shortcut Virus.

    Hope This Information Is Very Useful to All !! :)
