Thats the recycler virus
follow the link that X3non dropped. go straight to the command prompt method of recovering shortcut corrupted files.
download the latest version of Norton from their website (even if its trial) and scan your PC

Pls try to get a grip of their problem first before refering them to the blogs

I figured out now that the solution you kept refering them to in your blog doesn't solve the problem

So I advice you understand them first pls

Thanks

I'm pretty sure it does. 
There's a section at the blog post that describes the recycler virus. That will help him recover corrupted files on devices he connects to the PC.
Scanning the PC with an antivirus will remove recycler from the PC.
Both instructions have been given in the above comments
