Hello. I' gonna keep it short. I put a USB on my pc and I noticed some weird shortcuts (DCMI, Photo family etc) and I couldn't delete them. I figured out it could be a virus so I removed the USB. Later I restarted my pc and I got an error saying Windows Script Host Error something like ((loading script"C:\users\Ahmed\AppData\Roaming\Video.3gp" failed (The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process).)) I also had a shortcut on my Local disc D. I watched some tutorials but I am still unable to remove the virus. I tried also MalwareBytes, Hitman Pro and Bitdefender but no luck. Hitman Pro detected it but was unable to remove it.
I even delete it from the registry but when I restarted the pc I found it again.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Hello. Thank you for your reply. I actually downloaded USBFIX and I run a scan and it showed me the virus. I run a scan 3 times and then restarted the pc. The malware is removed. Thank you for your time.
