So I found out that I had a Trojan on my external hard drive. My anti-virus app killed it, but it has created a bunch of random files on my computer which cannot be deleted. These are image files. They cannot be renamed - using any method - nor can they be moved, cut, copied, permanently deleted or even opened (in any program).
How can we rid these files from our system?
I have tried:
- Right-click > Delete
- Shift+Delete (Permanently Delete)
- FileASSASSIN from MalwareBytes
- Eraser program
- sdelete program
- several commands in cmd
but none of them have been successful. How can I completely obliterate these files?
