Hi @ab1936

I have faced this virus many times when I share devices with my friend in collage. It can be solved in 2 steps:-

Step1: Remove the virus:

Try to scan with 2 tools : -

1) Malware byte

2) eset

Step2: You need to unhide the hidden files:-

Open CMD as admin > type cd > attrib -s -h -r /s /d

But the main problem will be at windows folder. You will unhide hidden system files too. So you need to be careful while deleting any files.

try clamwin portable, move it to your USB key and scan it
ClamWin Portable

if you suspect that hidden virus is there
1. Go to control Panel, Folder Options -- select VIEW--- select Show hidden files and folders and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended) click APPLY
2. go to your USB delete virus and all the shortcut folders that have
no data in them. create new folders (give the same name as your normal non infected hidden folders) and copy the data from YOUR hidden folders
into them. once that is done delete the old hidden folders.
3. enter task manager--- find the virus program that is still running which will have the same name as the one you just deleted off the usb key
4. go back to control panel, Folder options select view- select DO
NOT show hidden files and folders and recheck Hide protected operating system files (recommended).

Hi @ab1936

Ok, It havn't spread to your laptop. You pendrive driver letter is L. Sorry, the command should be:-

cd L:

attrib -s -h -r /s /d
