Can Malwarebytes remove shortcut virus?

Recommended Posts

" usb shortcut virus "

That's your words.  There is no such thing as a " usb shortcut virus ".  However there are worms that affect removable Read/Write media such as USB Hard Disks and USB Flash drives.  They are called AutoRun Worms because they take advantage of the MS Windows AutoRun/AutoPlay facility.  AutoRun Worms are a kind of virus because they are able to self replicate by exploiting the AutoRun/AutoPlay capability.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware ( MBAM ) does target AutoRun Worms where the free version can remove them and the paid-for, full version, can protect against them as well.
