    Actually there are some other ways to prevent from virus attack; one of the simple ways is to disable/cancel the autorun action when external devices connected to the system.

    If the device has infected by virus and you perform double click then the virus will be triggered and allocate to your local drive.

    To open the folder from external device, you can do this:
    – Go to “My computer” then right click the device and select “open”.

    You can use The EXPLORER on My Computer to open it.

    But also you can use this command to show the files or folders that are not shown in your Device.

    attrib -h -s -r """FILENAME"""."""EXT...""""

    For Example

    attrib -h -s -r rejanzeneli.bat

    and if you dont know which folder or file is hidden in your drive then just do like this

    attrib -h -s -r  """and here hit the TAB button until you find the file or folder not shown in Drive"""

    Maybe This will help to remove all the folders and files that are not usable and are virus for your pc.
