U can use cmd to delete those shortcut virus.
Just type “attrib f:*.* /d /s -h -r -s ” in your cmd and then the computer will itself delete those shortcut virus.
If you are not able to delete those by cmd then you can follow the guide below for more methods to remove the shortcuts completely from your system.

Note that in the suggestion above the f after attrib is the drive letter in question. If you are trying to apply this to the system drive then it is usually c rather than f.

I would be inclined to run these three small freebies in the order given because they often unearth what antivirus programs miss:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "download" button rather than the "buy" button).
Install and Run the program but before running the Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds.

Please copy/paste the logs on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
