Remove virus “myFolder.exe”

I could fix the usb-disks infected with the virus which replaces your folders with a file folderName.exe, by following these steps (on Windows) –

  1. Run the command attrib e:\*.* /d /s -h -r -s in the command prompt – this will display all the hidden files and folders.
  2. Delete the dll file that appears in the disk after the above command is run, and also the folders converted to .exe.

The disk should now be usable again.
