Solution for Shortcuts in Pendrive and Computer

Today most of the computers are having these shortcuts problem. When we plug in a pendrive or hard disk or memory card i.e., any removal disks into computer all of a sudden folders and files in the drive changes to shortcuts. Not only in removal disks but also our computer hard drive folders and files show shortcuts.
If we try to open the shortcut sometimes it says "Missing Shortcut" and we can't just simply format our removable disks or our computer because all the important data will be erased completely. Even though we use good antivirus software's like Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Norton, Avira, Avast, Eset, etc., this problem cannot be solved easily. So, we have found a simple way for this problem. Follow the below steps carefully to remove the shortcuts and retrieve back your folders.

Step 1:
First download the "UsbFix" software which is of just a 1MB file.
Previously we have posted the software directly due to the various complaints we received direct link is removed. If you want the software we will send it to your email. So, please provide your email address in the comment box. Sorry for the inconvenience please try to understand us.

UsbFix software is completely free from virus. Checked by using Kaspersky internet security 2014 and Norton 360 antivirus. You download it without any doubt. If still you have doubt you can scan it after downloading the software by using any antivirus.

Step 2:
Downloaded file is in .rar format. So, after downloading extract the .rar file using winrar or winzip software. If you don't have winrar or winzip software download them from net directly they are available for free. After downloading and installing winrar or winzip extract the usbfix software.

Step 3:
After extracting now double click on the UsbFix to open it. When you open the software a "User Account Control" message appears with yes and no options, click yes. Then a window will open as shown below.
Now plug in all the pendrives, hard disks, memory cards which have the shortcuts problem and click on "Deletion" option in the software. Then it shows an message to connect all your external devices as you have already plugged in just click ok. Then another message opens to save all your work, click ok and the software starts running.
Note: Save all your work before running this software because it stops all the applications and software's and you cannot even open anything until the process is completed. For process it may 10 to 30 minutes based on the extent of problem. Don't try to close the software in between the process.
Important: This software doesn't delete any of your files and recovers all your hidden files and removes the shortcuts in your drives and computer. UsbFix is tested working on the following operating systems:
Operating systems tested: Windows 7, 8, 8.1
This software can also be used when your pen drive doesn't show any files in it but the memory is full. Such kind of situation can also be solved by using the UsbFix Software. Follow the above same procedure to recover your files.

After removal of shortcuts use a good antivirus software to protect your system from infecting again. Perfect antivirus software's available in the market are:
  1. Bitdefender
  2. Kaspersky
  3. Norton
  4. AVG
  5. Avira
  6. Avast
  7. G-Data 
  8. F-Secure
  9. Trend Micro etc.
Bitdefender and Kaspersky are the highly ranked antivirus software's at present based on protection but they slow your computer. If you have low random access memory(RAM) then don't use this Bitdefender and Kaspersky antivirus. They impact your system performance and slows it down. Norton, Avast and G-Data doesn't slow down your computer they have very less impact on your system performance. So, you can use them for systems with low RAM i.e., computers below 4.00 GB RAM it is advisable to antivirus software's like Norton, Avast and G-data and computers above 4.00 GB RAM can use antivirus software's like Bitdefender and Kaspersky to protect their system from virus. If you are confused to buy which antivirus than try them free for 30 days and choose the best that is suitable to you and your computer.
Please don't use pirated versions of antivirus software's. If you cannot afford for buying a antivirus then use free version provided by Avast or AVG or Avira. They provide good protection to your computer. Kill piracy and support software companies.
