Remove Pendrive Shortcut Virus without Antivirus

Have messed up with the problem where your pendrive has only shortcuts of all the folders or 

you can see only one shortcut of your pendrive and there is no data when you open your pendrive , even though it shows the memory occupied,  when you see its properties ???

Then here is the solution for this virus without having an Antivirus.. :)
Step 1:
 Download Autorun Exterminator

Extract ithe zipped file, double click on "AutorunExterminator" then Plug your pendrive now.
This will remove the autorun.inf files from drives.

Click on "Start">Run >type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your pen drive letter as F: 

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d f:\*.*

You can copy the above command.  Right-click in the Command Prompt and paste it. 

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter f with your pen drive letter. 

Now press "Enter". That’s it!!!!
Now check for your files and folder in Pen Drive.

If there are any Shortcut folders, just delete them. you wont loose any data.

  1. If you have Kaspersky and still only the shortcut is visible, then you can view the contents by going to folder options->show hidden files and then uncheck hide operating system files(recommended)->OK
    Now you can see all your stuff once again! :P
