On my sony VAIO duo 11 windows 8, I have a virus that makes everything a "shortcut" especially on my flash drives. The problem is, I want to reinstall windows from the recovery partition that's on the HDD. However, every time I try to copy the recovery partition onto a flash drive, it copies over to the flash drive in a "shortcut" fashion which hinders me from creating a bootable flash drive. I tried malware bytes and other antivirus programs to make it stop creating shortcuts but to no avail. I need help.
