It depends on whether you have created the shortcut in the USB or the USB and the computer that it was inserted into before have created those shortcuts, without any user manipulation.

If the user is the one who created those, then there is no problem in this and it can be declared that the USB is still functioning properly.

In case it is a virus, do the possible solutions below:

Solution 1

  • Scan the USB device with an Antivirus software and let it assess if there really is a virus inside your USB. 

Solution 2

  • Format the USB drive but be sure to make a backup of your most important files in the USB. This will give you a fresh USB virus free. But always be careful before putting back some of your files.

Hope this answers your question.
