Tip

Remove shortcuts from pendrive,


If your Pen Drive is infected with any of the following viruses:
  • Autorun.inf
  • new folder.exe
  • Iexplorer.vbs
  • Bha.vbs
  • nfo.exe
  • New_Folder.exe
  • ravmon.exe
  • RVHost.exe or any other files with extension.
Actually this viruses are hidden and can't be seen even after
you enable show hidden folders.
Following simple dos command will change the attributes of
these files ,there after you can remove it by pressing delete
key.
Follow these steps:
Step1.:Type cmd in Run
Step2.: Switch to the drive on which pen drive is connected
(like C:\> h: enter)
Step3.: type exactly as attrib -s -h *.* /s /d and hit enter
(don't forget spaces).
Now you can see hidden virus files and you can delete them.

I am using a Transcend 8GB USB Pend Driver. when i scanned it, it showed me that, find "rahulvirusprotection.vbe". Hence i delete it immediately. After deleting the virus, i tried to access the...


It is virus which uses autorun feature of the removable devices such as USB Pen Drive. These type of viruses usually have two files. (a) autorun.inf and (b) the executable (.exe) or script file. Some Antivirus programs delete the exe file but the autorun files remains. In your case, the exe file (rahul's virus protection.vbe) has been removed but the autorun entry is there, which is run everytime you try to access your pen drive. First, plug-in the drive and DONT OPEN IT. Open 'My Computer' , right click the pen drive and choose explore. (This would by-pass the autorun feature).

Download Flash Disinfector and save it to your desktop. Double-click Flash Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear. The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive. 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.

(Flash_Disinfector will remove any autorun.inf files, 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)


Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

If this is a U3 Sandisk USB stick drive you can usually use the launcher installer to backup the contents if it is still physically working.
Otherwise there are a few websites that will offer a recovery application

To remove virus from pen drive


Hi,
When you plug in your pen drive, don't open the pen drive.
You can see an secondary storage device icon in your 'My Computer'.
Right click the pen drive and scan for viruses.
If you really have virus then the virus, the antivirus agent will show you the virus.
You can kill/delete the virus.
You won't lose any of your data.
( OR)
I have one more option,
If you have linux(Linux Ubuntu, Suse Linux,...) installed in your system, you can login to Linux and
plug in your pen drive, you can delete the virus directly, by opening the pen drive.
Here also you won't lose any of your data.


Cheers...!!!
