Ok, Download a install Malwarebytes (Link in my signature). And do a full scan with it, it's guaranteed to remove any viruses.

Re: shortcut virus

Seconding echo, it's also a good idea to run malwarebytes in safe mode. If it doesn't start up properly you may want to use RKill to kill malicious processes.
