Welcome to the WindowsSeven forum!!
All data on the drive will be lost by doing this method.
Please do the following...
Save to the Desktop.
When a window requesting the connection of removable drives appears, please connect the problem USB drive as requested!
Right-click the downloaded USBFix file and select: Run as Administrator
This option scans the connected drives, and reports its infected Files and Folders
When done, the program closes on its own, and a report appears.
(The report file is also found at C:\UsbFix.txt)
Please post the UsbFix.txt (Research) report in your reply.
Once again, run USBFix as Administrator, but, this time, press: Listing
It creates a report of all the Folders and Files found at the root of every hard drive, partition, or removable drive connected.
Also post the UsbFix.txt (Listing) report in your reply.
Note 1: If USBFix does not run in normal Windows, please run in Safe Mode:
Restart your computer.
When the computer starts, tap the F8 key on the keyboard repeatedly until presented with the Advanced Boot Options menu
Using the arrow keys, select: Safe Mode
Press the Enter key on your keyboard to boot into the selected mode.
Note 2: If your AntiVirus program detects USB as malware, either let the AV program allow USBFix to run, or, temporarily disable your AntiVirus program:
When done with USBFix, re-enable your AV!
Last, please download the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool
Select the version that applies to your system: 64-bit
Save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the downloaded file to run it.
When the tool opens click Yes to the disclaimer.
Press the Scan button.
The tool makes a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory from which the tool is run (Desktop).
Please provide the FRST.txt in your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log: Addition.txt
Also post the Addition.txt in your reply.

In the screenshot you posted, you ARE viewing your USB drive contents. Look at the address bar, look at how it says "Computer => Removable disk (F:)".
The disk only contents is a shortcut named exactly the same as the real link in Computer. Note how the "Type" column says "shortcut" and while everything there is in Spanish, that icon is in English. It obviously point to a virus in the same drive, that you are attempting to run unintentionally by double-clicking it. Apparently, your USB has been completely wiped and only a virus was left on it.
Try enabling show of hidden files, at least if there is something of your files left out there, they will appear. If nothing still shows up, you might want to try some undelete program, or simply reformat the drive, as your data is already lost.

I was at my school when i made this thread and kaspersky wasnt able to remove the virus. I just connected the usb to my computer and NOD 32 removed the virus. all my files were in a hidden folder. since they were just songs i already have here i just formatted it
