How to remove the Shortcut Making Virus


Hi, for all of you who are reading my blog. Today I brought a little tutorial to remove the shortcut making virus completely from your system. I think that shortcut making virus is a headache for you. I also experienced that foolish virus. It shortcuted all my files and folders. I couldn’t do anything after that with my files. I think this is the case for you too. Let’s begin the tutorial in this way, In this Tutorial, I’ll take a removable disk as my virus infected device. (eg. – A pen drive)

First of all you need to download a very tiny file. I’ll provide the download link,  after this tutorial’s end. So download it and keep it in a safe place. Maybe on your desktop. First of all, Update your Virus Guard and scan the removable disk  for viruses and delete all the viruses that are reported as viruses by the virus guard. I recommend Avast Free antivirus as your Antivirus product.  Do not fear about your files that are being deleted by the virus guard. They’ll be as before after this little process. So keep calm. Even after the antivirus scan, there should be shortcuts in your removable disk. But don’t worry. The next step is to extract the downloaded file. After extracting the file, you’ll find a file named “hidden Remover.bat”. copy that file and paste it in your removable disk where the shortcuts are still present. Then run that file. After few seconds it’ll auto close and your files and folders will be same as before the virus infections.

This is tested on Windows 7 and XP. I’ll pretty sure that it’ll also work in Windows 8 as well.  but it is not tested by me on ubuntu or linux platforms. I’m so sorry for that…

The next factor is, if your virus infected drive is and partition of your hard drive, don’t worry. continue the steps given by me on above in the post.

I also recommend you to use USB Disk Security  too. Caz, it can detect viruses even without the updates. It caught all the viruses that were caught by the Virus Guard even before the Virus Guard.

I hope you’ll fix these virus issues, with the help of this little tutorial. If you will have any problems, Please write down a comment below this post.
