my cousin's computer was infected with the microsoft 0day exploit thingy, i plug my usb into his comp, i come home and now all the folders in that usb turn into shorcuts, those shortcuts wouldn't work so i formatted my usb because i didn't care much for the files on there.

but i would like to know if this thing had infected my comp now. the folders on my computer had not turn into shortcuts like what happened with the usb. Microsoft security essentials didn't give me any reports although i haven't done a scan with it, however i have done a quick scan with malwarebytes anti-malware and it didn't find anything. i know this thing gives off rootkits, i dont know much about finding rootkits, so what should i do to check if i'm infected?

also, how would i recover my data if i did wanted to keep them.
