I downloaded ESET Internet Security recently to do a checkup scan on my device and it deleted all of my games' files and when I try to restore any file it tells me that it failed. I attached a photo of it here. please help.

I will also add all external drives that have been attached to this PC should also be scanned:

Spreading on removable media

The virus copies itself into the root folders of removable drives using a random filename.

The filename has one of the following extensions:

  • .exe
  • .pif
  • .cmd

The following file is dropped in the same folder:

  • autorun.inf

The AUTORUN.INF file contains the path to the malware executable.

Thus, the virus ensures it is started each time infected media is inserted into the computer.

Viruses infect existing legitimate files. They either append or pre-pend their code and modify the entry point to make sure that the code is executed. If you ran a file that was cleaned by ESET and it failed to run, please email it to samples[at]eset.com, ideally along with the original version of the file. Some viruses infect files in an irreversible way and restoring them to the original form is not possible.

The best would be to email a pair of a detected and a cleaned file that doesn't run after cleaning in an archive encrypted with the password "infected".
