Something weird when I plug any USB

  1. One day I plugged my USB and I didn't find any of my files.
    I went to "Tools >> Folder options >> View >> Show Hidden files and folders, unchecked the Hide extensions, Unchecked the Hide protected operating system files"
    and here I see an Icon as my Drive (in other USBs as a folder) without any name or label
    (check the picture I added please).

    I right click on the icon, I can't find any delete and if I click on "Properties" nothing shows up.

    If I double click on it, it opens another window showing my USB files that were supposed to be directly in my USB.

    Is there anything I can do to delete this virus from all my USB and external HDD I plugged into my pc and had the same problem.

    Thank you a lot

    Drag the required files into a folder on your desktop, format the USB, drag them back.

    I tried to do this, and still have the same problem every time I plug my usb again?
    I tested my pc and it didn't show any virus or worm or something!!
