What is Shortcut Virus?

 I have seen this problem in PC having antivirus too, when your Pen drive, PC, Hard Disk, Memory cards or mobile phone got infected by some anonymous malware, they change your files into shortcuts with the original folder icons.

Just follow the below given steps to remove, delete, wipe out or whatever the shortcut virus from your pen drive, memory cards or even mobile phone and recover back your files. 

Follow the below Steps:

1. Go to Start -> Run -> cmd.

2. Go to your pen drive, memory cards or mobile phone directory.
3. Type del *.lnk (to delete all link files in the directory)
4. Type attrib –r –a –s –h /s /d (Drive Word):\*.*

5. Replace e with your drive letter.
6. And then press a gentle Enter.
7. Copying the main files or folders you lost.

After pressing enter button "Open Your Pen Drive" and you can see your lost files and folders along with the shortcut files and folders.
Immediately Copy Your Real Files and Folders From Pen Drive Into Your Computer.
After copying files and folders "Format" your pen drive.

So, That's It. Enjoy your virus free pen drive again.
