How to Remove Shortcut Virus on Windows?


Connect the affected USB drive to your computer. When the files on your USB drive have been changed to shortcuts, your files are actually still there in a hidden location. This process will restore the files so that you can see them again.
  • Do not run any of the shortcuts on the USB drive, or you risk spreading the infection.


26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-0.jpg
Determine the drive letter of the USB drive. You'll need to know the drive letter for the USB drive or memory card that has been affected by the virus. The quickest way to find this is to open the "Computer"/"This PC" window. The drive letter for the USB drive will be listed next to the drive label.
  • Press Win+E to open the window on any version of Windows.
  • Click the Folder button in your taskbar to open the window.
  • Click "Computer" in the Start menu if you're using Windows 7 or Vista.
26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-2.jpg
Open the Command Prompt. You'll be performing the fix using a few quick Command Prompt commands. The process for opening the Command Prompt varies depending on the version of Windows you are using:
  • Any version - Press Win+R and type "cmd" to launch the Command Prompt.
  • Windows 8 and newer - Right-click the Windows button and select "Command Prompt."
  • Windows 7 and older - Open the Start menu and select "Command Prompt."


26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg

Type .attrib -h -r -s /s /d X:\*.*and press? Enter. Replace Xwith your USB drive's letter. For example, if your USB drive's letter is E, typeattrib -h -r -s /s /d E:\*.* and press ? Enter.[1]
  • This will unhide the files, remove any read-only attributes, and remove the shortcuts.
  • The process may take a while to complete, depending on how much data is on the USB drive.
26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-14.jpg
Open the unnamed folder created on your USB drive. This folder will contain all of the data that was previously hidden by the infection.

26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-20.jpg Copy the recovered data to a safe location on your computer. This is a temporary location while you finish cleaning the drive. You can create a folder on your desktop to hold the files for now. Just drag the files from your USB drive to whichever folder you choose.
  • It may take a while to copy large amounts of data.
26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-27.jpg
Right-click on your drive in "Computer"/"This PC" and select "Format." This will open the Format window.
  • The formatting process will completely erase the drive, so make sure that you've copied your data off of it first.
26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-35.jpg
Uncheck "Quick Format" and click "Start." Unchecking "Quick Format" will scan for and remove the infection on the USB drive. The format process will likely take a while to complete. 26319209-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-44.jpg

Outside factors that affect connection speeds Unfortunately, there are events...


Outside factors that affect connection speeds <p>Unfortunately, there are events and conditions that are outside your control. Even with a fast connection, external factors, such as busy websites or spreading computer viruses, can slow the entire web. Popular websites can become overwhelmed with users. For example, when a television commercial mentions a website, many people might try to visit the site at the same time. If the website isn't prepared to handle the traffic, you might encounter delays.<br /> <p>During times of heavy computer virus outbreaks, the Internet can slow down. Many viruses spread by causing computers to send out hundreds or thousands of copies of the virus. This can slow the Internet by sheer volume. You can see what major outbreaks are currently happening by visiting your antivirus vendor's website, or the <a href="http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=42641">Security at Home</a> website.<br /> <p>Local Internet congestion can also result in slower-than-normal connection speeds. These slowdowns occur when many people try to connect to the Internet at the same time, and they occur most often at peak activity times, such as after school hours when students get home and connect to the web.<br /> <p>If you're on a corporate network, general network and proxy server use can affect your Internet performance. Most network administrators monitor Internet use, and will try to keep people from doing things like downloading large files during peak hours. If you find that your Internet access is slow at times, you might discuss it with your network administrator.<br />

How to Reduce Spreading of Virus on the Hard Drive


<b><u>An insight in VIRUS INFECTION and VIRUS SPREADING</u></b><br /> <br /> In today's computing spreading of virus is fast and very common.<br /> Even with an up to dated antivirus software the spreading of the virus infection is fast.<br /> This is because, we are not aware of how the virus spreads in our system.<br /> Once we know how the virus infects and spreads in our system then we will definitely reduce the risk, time and money spent.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Here is a short insight about viruses:</u></b><br /> <br /> 1) Virus is a small program code enabling it to to mingle or merge with other program codes.<br /> <br /> 2) The Virus Program Code is written such that it deletes data, corrupts data, steals data send it to the maker of the code, etc.<br /> <br /> 3) The virus cannot run on its own. It has to be executed just like other exe program files. That is why the autorun.inf file is required.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Now for an insight how we get infected:</u></b><br /> <br /> 1) Thorugh the internet: Usually when we browse any web site files are downloaded from the web server to our temporary internet folder(in windows) Then our Browser software reads the files and executes them in the browser window for us to view the web site.( If you are a website Designer you would understand this for others get an insight how internet browsers work), So when we are in the internet Virus files attach themself to the downloading files and enter our system in the temporary folder, From here they are executed by our browser software or when any program accesses the temporary folder.<br /> <br /> 2) Another one is we download a lot of data from the internet, we should be careful on what we are downloading because if the data downloaded is infected with virus then we are downloading the virus to our system along with the data, Don't download the data unless you are sure you could trust the maker of the data, program,etc.<br /> <br /> 3) From other medias like Flash Drive, CD's, DVD,s,etc.:<br /> We copy a lot of data to our computer from our friends and relatives, so if the data is already infected with virus we copy the virus to our system also, when we run os use the data the virus is executed along with it.<br /> <br /> <b><u>Now for an insight how Virus Spreads:</u></b><br /> <b></b> <br /> Just like any other program code the virus code has to be executed.<br /> That is why the virus merges with other exe's which are executable and not with the data file.<br /> <br /> For eg: a file with .avi, .dat, .3gp, etc. all these files are data files they dont execute, but they are used by exe files like wmplayer.exe, winamp.exe, vlplayer.exe, etc. The .avi .dat .3gp files are data files, the wmplayer.exe, winamp.exe vlplayer.exe are program files. Thus mostly exe program file get infected with virus.<br /> <br /> Usually when our system gets infected and any antivirus program cleans our system you can notice that the windows media player or winamp player or vlc media player does'nt work because it is removed or deleted by the antivirus for virus infection but the songs or video you saved is unharmed in the harddisk.<br /> <br /> That is why the virus code hangs or merges or infects mostly exe program files, So that it is executed along with the program file.<br /> <br /> So when you run an infected windows media player to play a song the virus code is also run along with the windows media player. Thus the virus is run again and again.<br /> <br /> There are hundreds of program files in the os for doing various tasks.<br /> we are going to look into just one program which the virus uses to spread itself in our system.<br /> <br /> The Program is non other than explorer.exe in windows. This program is needed to view or browse the data files stored in the hard disk.<br /> When we double click the My Computer Icon on the desktop the explorer.exe is executed which show you a window on your screen with the hard disk drives and cd dvd drives in the windows Now you can imagine how frequently you use the explorer.exe. You use it to view any data on the computer, even our desktop uses explorer.exe. This program is executed right when windows logs us on.<br /> <br /> When this program file is infected, it keeps on executing the virus each time we use the program. by this method the virus spreads fast to every parts of the hard disk.<br /> <br /> Likely there is a method to avoid executing the virus along with the explorer.exe each time we use it.<br /> <br /> When we double click any icon or object on our windows screen we execute the default command in the right click menu. Usually it is the Run Command. for eg: when you double click word the word.exe runs, similarly when we double click the my computer icon the default right menu option is <b>Open</b> which run the explorer.exe program.<br /> <br /> Instead of using this method to view files and data in our system we could use an alternate method which is using the explorer menu option when we right click my computer or right click the windows start button or in fact the explorer option is there whenever you right click any object on the screen.<br /> <br /> By using this explorer option in the right click you get a window with two panes one to the left and one to the right. In the left pane you have the directory structure showing all the directories and folders in our hard disk and in the right pane the content of the directory or folder selected in the left pane.<br /> <br /> Thus in this process we dont execute any code or program command when viewing the data in our hard disk. because we do not execute the explorer.exe more than once.<br /> <br /> So, Imagine how we reduce the spreading of virus by using this method.<br /> <br /> Say you have a file saved in your hard disk in this location<br /> <br /> <b>C:\data\monday\20-11-2010\office\media\todaysjob.doc</b><br /> <br /> If you want to open the file with word we will double click my computer, then double click C Drive, then Double Click data folder,then double click monday folder, then double click 20-11-2010 folder, then double click till you come to the media folder then you double click the todaysjob.doc which will execute the word.exe program which reads the data in the todaysjob.doc file and displays the content as required. In this process see how many time you will execute the virus, You will run the virus Seven Times.<br /> <br /> In our Alternate method You will run the Explorer.exe only once, Then on you just navigate to the media folder then double click the todaysjob.doc file in the right panel. So you execute the virus only once. <br /> <br /> Hence you reduce the spreading of VIRUS to a great extend.<br /> <br /> Good Luck, If there are any mistake please bare with me, I am not a good writer.

After disabling the feature you will have access to your memory card/USB stick. The next step is to delete autorun.inf virus file hidden on your memory card/USB stick. But first you need to make the hidden virus file visible.

Follow steps in link to show hidden system files :

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/show-hidden-files-in-windows-7/

Now navigate to your memory card/USB stick you should see the autorun.inf file - DELETE IT.

(If it doesnt allow you to delete it - restart the PC in safe mode by pressing F8 on start up and choosing safe mode and try again)

Back up your files on the memory stick/USB stick to your PC and to make sure the virus is gone from the memory stick/USB format it using your PC.

This tip regarding usb viruses..............


disable the autoplay of your USB and do not open the pendrives of flash cards directly by double clicking on the device icons displayed in the my computer
because opening directly led to execution of autorun.inf and it spreads the virus throughout the computer.

this will surely prevent from trojans, keyloggers, and viruses also.

Kinds of computer virus


from your question, what are the kinds of computer viruses, here is the detailed explanation:

Computermag-glass_10x10.gif viruses are generally defined as a program inputted into a computer that allows replication of the program installed. As it replicates, the program intentionally infects the computer, typically without even the user knowing about the damage being done. A virus, unlike worms or Trojan horses, needs an aid to transfer them to computers. Viruses usually take a large amount of computer memory, resulting into system crashes. Viruses are categorized to several parts based on its features.
Macro Viruses A macro virus, often scripted into common application programs such as Word or Excel, is spread by infecting documents. Macro viruses are known to be platform-independent since the virus itself are written in language of the application and not the messagebox_info.png operating system. When the application is running, this allows the macro virus to spread amongst the operating systemsmag-glass_10x10.gif. There are thousands of macro viruses that exists, and each are considered major threats. Examples of these viruses are: Melissa.A and Bablas. pc.
Network Viruses Network viruses rapidly spreads through a Local Network Area ( messagebox_info.png LAN), and sometimes throughout the internet. Generally, network viruses multiply through shared resources, i.e., shared drives and folders. When the virus infects a computer, it searches through the network to attack its new potential prey. When the virus finishes infecting that computer, it moves on to the next and the cycle repeats itself. The most dangerous network viruses are Nimda and SQLSlammer.
Logic Bombs The messagebox_info.png logic bomb virus is a piece of code that are inputted into a software system. When a certain and specific condition is met, such as clicking on an internet browser or opening a particular file, the logic bomb virus is set off. Many programmers set the malicious virus off during days such as April Fools Day or Friday the 13th. When the virus is activated, then various activities will take place. For example, files are permanently deleted.
Companion Viruses Companion viruses takes advantage of MS- messagebox_info.png DOS. This virus creates a new file with typically the messagebox_info.png .COM extensions, but sometimes the .EXD extension as well. When a user manually types in a program they desire without adding .EXE or any other specific extention, DOS will make the assumption that the user want the file with the extension that comes first in alphabetical order, and thus running the virus. The companion virus is rare among Windows XP computers as this particular operating system does not use the MS-DOS.
Boot Sector Viruses messagebox_info.png Boot sector viruses generally hide in the boot sector, either in the bootable disk or the messagebox_info.png hard drive. Unlike most viruses, this virus does not harm the files in the hard disk, but harm the hard disk itself. Boot sector viruses are uncommon at this day and age because these viruses are spread rapidly by floppy disks and not on CD-ROMs.
Multipartite Viruses Multipartite viruses are spreaded through infected media and usually hides in the memory. Gradually, the virus moves to the boot sector of the hard drive and infects executable files on the hard drive and later across the computer system
