Same Problem was with me. I used avast antivirus & scanned the Memory Card/Pen Drive. All problems/viruses gone. Hope it will help.

Trying giving a suitable topic to your thread.


Thanks,
MArk

I think you didn't read my post. Try scanning with Avast Antivirus only. It will help.

Plug in your flash card, and find out its' drive letter, Open windows explorer, or My Computer.

Open a Command Prompt, and enter the Flash Card drive letter, then press Enter.

Next type del *.lnk Press Enter. Next type the following:
attrib -s -r -h *.* /s /d Press Enter.

After the attrib command is finished, your files on the flash drive may be hidden, Go into Control Panel > Folder Options > View > click on the "Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives"
