How to remove microsoftexcel.wsf virus?

This virus came from my father's USB and it's pissing me off because it brought a virus on my new laptop. Now, everytime I insert a SD Card, a flash drive or whatnot, all my files always appear as shortcut. I need help.

When you insert the usb stick do the files look something like this?


If so please enable hidden files and folders by following these guides for Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows 8 and 8.1.

And then send me back a screenshot of what you see with the hidden files shown.

Download UsbFix on your computer, and execute it.
It will launch automatically, and a shortcut will be created on your desktop.
Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, external drives, etc…) Do not open them.
Choose “Clean” option.
