First thing I'd do would be to save any data I want to keep from my C: drive. Then I'd restore to factory settings per my user guide. When done, the next thing I'd do would be to install an antivirus and get it up to date. Then (and only then) I'd see what's on those external drives.
Hi Admin, i have a 1TB external hard drive shrinking all my files into one link kinda virus. tried to download all the possible program i can to see my normal files back again. but after tons of reformatting / rebooting / installing new OS (Windows 8 pro) for fresher OS, then installed Norton Anti Virus [Updated], after doing some steps provided in some forum. he told me to download a UsbFix to delete the virus:
but it failed again, I tried to backing up my files to another flash drive and it also affected the other flash drive creating links and affecting every usb that connects into the PC and Laptop. How can i see my files again? T_T is there any steps or possible way to eliminate that virus? or is my Unit, PC, Laptop, and 2 external hard drives are infected with this kind of virus? Please help T_T Thank you so much.
