How to remove “Pendrive Shortcut” virus from a Windows computer?

I have scanned with Avast antivirus and Malware bytes anti-malware tool, but they are not detecting the virus. Please let me know is there any solution to removing the virus without formatting the hard drive.

    Try the AutorunExterminator software found here: There are steps to follow here:

    Have you scanned your hard drive, pen drive, and other drives attached to your computer? After you remove the virus, you have to unhide your files on the pen drive, and then undo the shortcut creation. This is explained in the link above.
