Specs: Windows 7
When you open your Flash Drive or External Hard Drive in a PC, you will see all of your files and folders looks like shortcuts. They have changed to shortcuts. Sometimes this happens only to folders. Their name is OK, but all the icons have shortcut arrow. If you try to open a file or folder (just double click) nothing will happen.

I would recommend

clicking on the start menu
click on run
type cmd
then type cd \ (in command window)
(after this type in cd the letter of your flash drive(e,f,g,h,i ? :\)
for example
cd e:\
then attrib -s -h *.*
then look back at your usb your files should be returned.

the .scr files are links to a virus file
right click on one, then select properties, then click on the shortcut tab, then click on the "find target"

reply if you dont mind as to the name of the target file, and where it is located, from there i will help you remove the infection.
