Are you sure it is really a virus? If so, I believe any powerful security application would clean your system and undo the changes applied by malware.

Most antivirus doesn't detect those shortcut virus but SMADAV does. The best one is avast free anti - virus. Install it and forget about virus. It'll easily clean your shortcut virus.

Over the years, I have tried using different kinds of antivirus programs. Of the many ones that I have used, Comodo antivirus seems to be the most effective. It successfully blocks almost all kinds of threats; I'd say near total protection. Well, you make inquiries about Comodo. I bet you'd get mostly positive feedback.

Don't go for one that satisfies just your present need. Think of long-term needs and usage and opt for an antivirus software that helps solve this issue and which would be of use in the future as well.

I’d agree with what helenrandall says. I have been using different antivirus tools over the years. In my experience too, it’s Comodo that works the best, in most cases. As helenrandall says, “It successfully blocks almost all kinds of threats” and gives near total protection. Try that out.

I’d also agree with what lyanplunkeet says. You should definitely think beyond your present needs when going for an antivirus. I’d also say that it’s always better to think of long-term needs and usage and opt for a solution that helps solve the present issue and would be of use in the future as well.
