whenever i try to move files with an usb flash drive from another pc to my pc, the files shows up as dead shortcuts  and avg keeps spamming "VIRUS! DUDE THIS IS A VIRUS! VIIIIRUUS!!!!" and when i click remove files, they will soon come back.. When I tried to move some files from my pc to anothert pc, they showed up as shortcuts already when I had moved them to the drive folder, and then the avg spamming started. And yes im sure it says move/copy instead of make shortcut. I tried with multiple usb flash drives but its happening with all of them, which makes it obvious that the problem lies in the pc.. pleaz help ^n^
