Shortcut virus



I've run into a problem of a persistent shortcut virus that seems to recur regardless of the "attrib" solution despite my computer volumes nad registries being clean of all this crap


If I format the flash drive, will this issue be solved?


Will I run into any problem with the wireless connection if I format the flash drive to NTFS instead of exFAT?


Hopin for any generous help soon, as I need my flash for my uni projects!

Re: Shortcut virus

formatting the drive will not cause any problems. You will have to format in exFAT or FAT32 is you have a 64Gb or higher and FAT32 only if you have a 32GB or lower. NTFS is not supported by the app.
