We hate it when our PCs get infected by malware, but that hate doubles when we are talking about viruses that affect our flash drives or removable media since they sometimes contain files that may not be found anywhere else.

One such virus is the dreaded shortcut virus, which transforms all the files from a flash drive into shortcuts that lead to nowhere and cannot be fixed by traditional means.

Shortcut Virus Remover is a simple to use tool that enables you to clean the shortcut virus from USB drives and even immunize them against future threats.

First of all, you'll be glad to know that this program does not require any setup process, meaning it won't create any additional files or mess up your system's registries.

Secondly, the UI is incredibly minimalistic and intuitive, having all buttons clearly labeled to let you know what each of them does.

There are many things that Shortcut Virus Remover can do, such as automatically disable Windows Hosts Script, USB Write Protection or Media AutoPlay, all of which ensure that the virus stays contained and can be destroyed efficiently.

More so, the user is given the power to disable or enable multiple features, such as the Powershell script, Task Manager, Command Prompt, Run Dialog and more.

Once a USB flash drive has been cleansed, you can then proceed to immunize it against similar future threats, although it should be mentioned that this immunization only lasts until the flash drive is formated.

Shortcut Virus Remover is lightweight, portable, works fast, but more importantly, it works efficiently, allowing you to get rid of the frequently encountered shortcut virus, thus saving whatever files you had stored on your flash drives.
