Try removing the file by using Linux instead of Windows.

Just delete the file. It's recommended to do so after you fix the virus infection on the computer.

✔ Best Answer
Try this:

Open CMD (command prompt). [Go to Run > type CMD > Hit enter]
Type the name of your pen drive and a colon after it and hit enter. [Example:- e:]
Now type:
attrib -h -r -s /s /d e:\*.*
(Replace e: with the drive name of your pen drive)

Hopefully your files will then return.
