My OS is Windows 7, AV is PC Tools Internet Security and I have MalwareBytes installed and updated.
Today when I opened my Flash drive I noticed that all my folder icons had the little shortcut arrow in them. When I try to open any of these a message box pops up saying 'Windows couldn't find the file "G:\RECYCLER\65044f2".exe. Make sure the file name is spelled correctly and try again' (My computer is in Spanish so this is my hopefully correct translation).
When I right-click on them and select "Open file location" I am directed to C:\Windows\System32 and the application of cmd is selected.
I just opened these files normally yesterday and I don't know what happened. There are some Word documents and images in the drive and they can be opened without problem. Please help me, I have important documents in those files, both profesional and personal. Is there a way to recover these files?
Thank you in advance.
