I am having difficulty with my laptop right now. All of a sudden some partitions would contain a link to the previous contents of that partition. For example:
Before: Partition T:\ \somefile1 \somefile2 \somefile3 Now: Partition T:\ \autorun.inf \Partition T: . lnk \<random>.FAT (hidden) \desktop.ini (hidden) \(other hidden files)
The link file is a shortcut to the previous contents of the partition. Not only that, some of my folders (along with the files inside it) have gone missing. I suspect it's a virus but AVG and AVAST doesn't detect a thing (actually some Metasploit files but I know it's false positive) other than windows 7 loader extreme edition (w7lxe.exe). I recently installed a desktop theme, though, which had a explorer.exe and shell with it. Any suggestions? (file recovery's already solved)
And another, whenever I try to delete the autorun.inf file, It says, "Could not delete autorun.inf because it is open in Windows Update", when in fact my Windows Update is disabled.
============================ EDIT ==========================================
I forgot to mention: The .lnk shortcut is linked to 'rundll32.exe' and opens the null-named folder that contained the original content of the partition.
