    Recently my portable HDD got infected with many viruses. I scanned it using Kaspersky Internet Security 2010. It removed all threats and disinfected some files.

    Now what I find is, each and every folder there are useless shortcuts. It's very hard for me to remove it one by one since I've over 300GB of data in it.

    So is there any softwares which can search for all shortcuts and remove it.

    Thank you,

    Get a freeware program called Find Junk Files.

    It includes a program called Find Dead Links that will search a whole drive for invalid shortcuts.
