my pendrives have all their content files replaced with shortcuts. on one pendrive it opens after i click on the shortcut, while on the other it opens cmd and gives me an error "microsoft.vbs couldnt be found. i have done a malware and virus scan on my laptop and it turns up nothing. i also formatted my pendrive and the problem still persists. i have reason to believe the virus is on my laptop. my hardrives apparently are unaffected. only the My Documents folder has shortcuts of My music my pictures and my videos

Since you are already receiving help in the link you provided, please continue in that thread. Do not start new threads or duplicate topics as this causes confusion and makes it more difficult to get the help you need to resolve your issues. Further, it necessitates staff spending time with housecleaning to remove duplicate postings...time which could have been provided to others needing assistance and prevents your helper from knowing what else you have done.

Thanks for your cooperation.
