Hi guys. Sometimes its very irritating when you insert any USB and it shows many shortcuts of My Documents and all the important data and files become invisible. This is due to a shortcut virus. It is usually present in many computers of office, college or cyber cafes. Many of my friends are facing the problems with this virus. So here is a simple trick by which you can remove this virus from your pen drive.
- Open command prompt. go to start > run > type cmd.
- Insert your USB flash drive. Assuming it is drive I:
- In the command prompt window type the following code and hit enter
attrib -h -r -s /s /d I:*.*
- That’s it. Now you can see the magic that all your invisible files are back now.
