Hello , im having trouble with my flash drive..this is how it is..
When i open up my flashdrive instead of seeing my files i see a shortcut...i googled that and tunrs out i my usb caught the shortcut virus...followed online instructions but managed nothing...tried to unhide the hidden files and look up for the autorun.inf , nothing...tried the autorunexterminator to find the autorun.inf...still nothing...had the pc scanned by windows defender , malwarebytes , emisoft emergency kit and superantispyware...found a couple of bad stuff but i every time i plugged the flash drive in the shortcut was still there....
Only time i saw a difference was with emisofts program when i scanned the usb drive...
Emsisoft Emergency Kit - Version 10.0

The 1st time i deleted this i thought i was done...but i ended up doin so a couple of times before i realised that the virus was not in the flashdrive...i tried 'open file location' and it opened up a rundll32 in my C/windows/system32....from what i am to understand my rundll is a legitimate one and i think that the virus from the the usb has corrupted it...
how am i to fix this...please advise (os windows 8 32bit)
