Thanks! I had good success running RKILL, but is there a way to use it to clean an external drive? I ran Malwarebytes on my external drive for backup and it found and removed 3 very troublesome items,so I'e like to be able to run RKILL oni t and then repeat running malware bytes. Thanks in advance.

Rkill doesn't really do any cleaning actually, it stops known malicious processes, fixes some policy restrictions and fixes the exe open command if need be. A flash drive doesn't have processes or a registry so rkill won't really affect anything.
I suggest running ESET online scanner if you want to check for more malware, it's a deep scan but it can take quite a few hours.
