Hii Everyone,

 

I have a problem in my laptop, whenever I insert a pendrive in my lappy it creates a shortcut of that USB and the files don't open.

If I open the shortcut and then put my file in it , the file opens, It is affecting my lappy as well as other's. Some of my friends laptop has got affected because of this issue and some pendrive have stopped working. It gets write protected and also got .dll error.

Please suggest me something as soon as possible. I would be greatful to you people.

Download and Run FlashDisinfector

You may have a flash drive infection. These worms travel through your portable drives. If they have been connected to other machines, they may now be infected.
  • Please download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs and save it to your desktop.
  • Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
    Note: Some security programs will flag Flash_Disinfector as being some sort of malware, you can safely ignore these warnings
  • The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
  • Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
  • Reboot your computer when done.
Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection.

Download the version of this tool for your operating system.
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (64 bit)
Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (32 bit)
and save it to a folder on your computer's Desktop.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

How is the computer running now.

I was busy with some work.

I will do asap and will report back to you.

I have question on this...

What will happen if I again insert the pendrive in my friend's laptop. Should It get infected again ?

Not after you have cleaned your Pendrive.

Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection.
