If this "shortcut" has has a message please post it exactly as it appears.

 

If you looked at the website where McShield is located you would see a message right in the middle of the page in a very large font stating "MCShield is free and always will be!.

When you click on the shortcut does the flash drive open?

I hadn't suggested the use of it, that was FireHouse's suggestion.

 

What exactly do you mean by "it will prompt to another folder"?

 

Please post a screenshot of this message.

Update it,and run a scan of your hard drives and then USB. It will disinfect USB so you can rescue your data somewehere else. There's no other way.

The first image shows the flash drive option to open it.  The second image shows the content of the flash drive after it is opened.

 

Does this not occur with any flash drive you use?

Open Computer and right-click and scan drive with McShield,McShield will automatically identify your USB and it will be disinfected so you can rescue data.
