Hello,

 

I think I may have just contracted a virus on my PC.

 

Whenever I insert a USB, it creates fake folder files with the original folder names that were on my usb as "shortcuts", then hides all the actual folders so I have to go to control panel 'folder options' to unhide the files or else I won't be able to see them. I'm also having issues with Microsoft word that I think is related. Whenever I try to open a microsoft word file from my email, I get the message: "The operating system is not presently configured to run this operation" which is really weird because I've never gotten this message before and I have a legitimate copy of Word 2013.

 

I have run a malwarebytes scan and a Windows ME scan, and both picked up nothing

 

I am using win 7 Vista 64 bit

 

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Hi, I would like to suggest to use this program:

 

http://www.mcshield.net/

 

It helped me with problems with my USB and USB of other people, because I was printing to other people from their USB sticks, and many of them were infected with worms etc. 


I would like to help you to remove malware. Let's look inside.   :busy:

But I don't know to solve all PC problems.  :smash:
