An application which scans your removable USB flash drive or external hard-disk for trojans and viruses that use the autorun mechanism to infect your computer
This application installs without any issues and, due to its user-friendly graphic interface, even novices can effortlessly make use of its features.
In other words, you simply need to launch the software utility, then select the drive letter corresponding to your connected USB device, then press the Start button and begin fixing your files.
Once it has infected your device, the so-called shortcut virus basically replaces your files and folders with shortcut icons so that you can no longer access any of them. The fastest and safest way to get rid of the virus is to rely on dedicated security products, which can also help you make sure that the rest of the computer has not been compromised as well.
You need to allow AdvancedUsbDoctor enough time to finish processing your device, that is, it is advisable not to stop the scanning and fixing process until is complete.
All in all, AdvancedUsbDoctor might not come with a fancy graphical user interface or complicated menus, but this does not mean it does not do its job efficiently. However, a fully-fledged antivirus solution should also be installed onto the host computer, to prevent any future malware infections, as the shortcut virus is not the only threat out there.
