Windows Xp Professional service pack 3

I have a problem in my USB drive. I have posted a picture. I cant remove the infected files it say

Error deleting file or folder:Cannot read from the source file or disk. They also have been renamed to weird characters.

My computer is not infected by this even if i use my usb drive. Its just the usb drive. I have opened revo uninstaller file there is ... folder i cannot access it or delete it and a video which extension has been renamed to Mbox4 instead of mp4 where as i can delete office files.

Good evening. :)

I would copy any files that there are on the flashdrive to your PC that you want to keep and then reformat the flashdrive:

 

Navigate to the flashdrive using My Computer/Windows Explorer.

Right click the flashdrive icon.

Select Format..., ensure that the Quick Format box is checked and then Start.

 

The above is how it works on Windows 7 but it should be similar enough on XP that you can sort it out. All this does is reset your flashdrive back to how it was when you first connected it to your PC. Let me know how you get on.


So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Do you "eject" the flashdrive or simply pull it out of the computer?

Good evening. :)

Which means that some of time you don't. I suspect that the issue with your flashdrive is down to removing it before Windows had finished playing with it rather than an infection, although I can't be positive. There is no guarantee that the contents of the flashdrive can be recovered but a free apllication that may do this cabn be found here - although there is a "Buy" button the basic program is free.

Some more information can be found on the application here.


So long, and thanks for all the fish.
