    My computer is infected with a virus that hides folders


    Hello,
    Today, I plugged a flash stick of a friend into my laptop, I accidentally clicked a shortcut folder while I was trying to delete it manually, right after that whenever I plug my flash stick two folders with my username and new folder and another one named 'bizo' are created automatically.
    I'm using Avast Internet Security + Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    Boot into safe mode and scan again with avast and mbam.

    Does Avast have a feature that scans USB's automatically?

    Also, plug the usb into another pc that has an anti-virus program that scans usb's automatically.

    Have you tried using another memory stick / flash drive? This is just to verify if this is only an isolated problem.

    You can try scanning using other security software as well and others may detect a malware.

    Now, I don't have the virus in my flash stick, there's something wrong with Chrome, I run Adwcleaner and it always flags the following after the reboot :

    Key Deleted : HKCU\Software\Google\Chrome\Extensions\lmjegmlicamnimmfhcmpkclmigmmcbeh
    [C:\Users\NoureddinE\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Web Data] - Deleted [Search Provider] : hxxp://search.aol.com/aol/search?q={searchTerms}

    lmjegmlicamnimmfhcmpkclmigmmcbeh is the ID of the extension you are using.
    Go to the settings of the extensions, enable developer mode and search for the ID.

    Check your settings and make sure nothing is unusual.
