I am having a problem. Whenever i plug in my USB drive into my office computer, the following folders appears.

View post on

If I try to copy any folder from my computer to my USB drive, it hides the folder the other folder is changed to .exe file.

I scanned it with MSE and it didnt show me anything….I tried deleting the files using cmd (attrib method) and deleted the files. I even did a quick format. But whenever i re-plug in my USB these 2 files are always there in it.

How can I get rid of them?

    Since regular scans don't find anything, your system may have a root kit infection. Try Kaspersky FDSSKiller or Avast Anti-Rootkit. If your an experienced user , try GMER.

      Scanned using Kaspersky TDSS Killer and it didnt find anything as well. Guess formatting the pc is the only option i got.

      I did try this method and scanned my pc with Kaspersky Antiviru 2013. It didnt find anything on my pc. I plugged in my usb and scanned it but it didnt find anything. I use ehow guide, it removes the virus but when you replug it its there again.

      Even used Malwarebytes and scanned my pc in safe mode but it didnt find anything at all.

    it's infected, scan your system first it might be infected as well, then scan your usb, if you format your usb in quick mode, the problem will remain still there, maybe raw format would help to completely remove it

    scan with Hijackthis
    Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad

    Sounds like your system is infected and the virus is trying to replicate. Scan your system with an updated Malwarebytes preferably in safe mode and delete findings.

      Scanned PC through malwarebytes as well as Kaspersky. When the incident happened i had MSE installed but it didnt catch the thing either. Even when i scanned my usb using the above mentioned tools, they said its clean
