    if you delete all the shortcuts that have the viris
    will the material inside them be deleted as well?
    for example: photos, videos, documents?

    After obtaining this virus at uni, I’ve been searching extensively for a solution & your steps worked brilliantly!

    & “clo95”, I was also apprehensive about deleting the shortcuts but after step 5, the files return back to normal:)
