    Question Help! All files from any USB turns into shorcuts. What should I do? :(

    At first, I thought that my USB was the problem. Then, I tried other USBs and each of them gave the same result. All files turned into shortcuts. Please help me

    Hello dreamer22,

    Were any of your USBs inserted into an infected computer or public kiosk?

    Also what is the operating system and which security programs are installed.

    Best regards.

    The problem is I'm a student and we had a lot of group projects. I had to transfer files to them and so I don't know whose laptop I got the virus from. But I'm pretty sure it's from them. And an addition info is that whenever I delete all of the files from a USB there always comes 2 files which have many numbers and letters.

    ( 5f2c91bf1b61edb8693d6d80dd0d1a71.exe and gzueombvnx..vbs )

    Please help me :(

    Sorry for that.
    My laptop's operating system is Windows 7, and I have Malwarebytes and Super Antispyware

    Hi there,

    Someone can take a look at the system if you start a topic in the Malware Removal Forum where a volunteer analyst will advise when available.

    First see that forum's FAQ which also includes instructions in post #2 on how to provide DDS and aswMBR logs, which are used in the preliminary analysis.

    Cheers.
