LiveSafe detects malware but does not remove it effectively

Jump to solution

Hi everybody. McAfee LiveSafe installed on my PC detects W32/Autorun.worm!lnk on a USB pen drive,
then it says that the problem is fixed but as soon as I access again the USB pen drive with file explorer I see the problem again (automatic creation of folders links). If I run a complete scan on PC hard drive it says no problem. Installed a brand new pen drive and got the same problem. Tried Stinger, getsusp but no solution. Any idea? Thank you
