How to make Bootable USB Drive from CMD

How to make Bootable USB Drive from CMD

To format your computer with a usb drive you must have to make a bootable pen drive or usb drive. Listen if you have question of why should I use usb drive to format instead of cd/dvd then one thing you should notice that formatting computer with usb drive is very fast and reliable. It is best option when your pc is not connected to power. So make the usb drive bootable from these simple steps. Yo can make bootable pen drive for  Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8 and for Windows vista only using Command prompt. You can not make bootable usb drive for Windows XP by this process. 

It would be better if you copy all your windows files from dvd to your computer hard disk

Step 1- Insert your USB (4GB+ preferable) to the system and backup all the data from the USB as we
             are going to format the USB to make it as bootable.
Step 2- Open elevated Command Prompt. To do this, type in CMD in Start menu search field and hit
             Ctrl + Shift + Enter. Alternatively, navigate to Start > All programs >Accessories > right
             click on Command Prompt and select run as administrator.

Step 3- When the Command Prompt opens, enter the following command:
             DISKPART and hit enter.
             LIST DISK and hit enter.
             Once you enter the LIST DISK command, it will show the disk number of your USB drive.
             In the below image my USB drive disk no is Disk 1

Step 4- In this step you need to enter all the below commands one by one and hit enter. As these
             commands are self explanatory, you can easily guess what these commands do.
             SELECT DISK 1 (Replace DISK 1 with your disk number)
             SELECT PARTITION 1
             FORMAT FS=NTFS
             (Format process may take few seconds)

Note- You can also use "FORMAT FS=NTFS QUICK" command. This will take less time.

Hello friends. You all know well what a virus is. Virus may have different characteristics. I am not gonna define types of  virus here. A virus in a computer world is very popular. It is a type of virus which creates shortcut of your file.It may create shortcut of any file in your computer. It also creates shortcut when you send a file in external memory or open a external memory in corrupted system. Basically it infects flash drives like your pen drives.

I have used many antiviruses like avast, Microsoft Security Essential, but none of these are able to remove this. May be now it is able to remove this kind of virus. Then I found a trick which removes the virus and it does not require any antivirus.

In this blog I am gonna show you how to remove a shortcut virus from your computer. This becomes very serious when you found that you can not copy your data because only shortcut is copied. So I have made a trick by which you can remove this virus.

Understanding Of Removal Of Virus

At that time when my pc was infected by this virus, I thought virus is effective every time when I open my system, It means there is a process which runs every time when I start my computer. Then I opened task manager and found that process. Now to remove virus I have to close this process permanatly.

Removal Of Virus

If you are sure that your PC is infected by shortcut virus then follow the steps..

Step 1- Open Task Manager. To open this either press Ctrl+Shift+Esc or Ctrl+Alt+Delete or right click on task bar then select "Start Task Manager"

Step 2- Click on "Process"

Step 3- Go down then you can see a process "wscript.exe". This is a process which creates virus.

Step 4- Click on this process and then select "end process". Now it means this time you have closed the effect of virus. 

This is temporary not permanat. To see that virus is still effective or not send any file to pen drive. I am sure virus will not be created. But if you restart your computer, The process will run and again and again you have to close the process again. But I have the solution..

Step 5- Click on start menu and type "msconfig" and open it. If you are windows xp user then open "run" command and type "msconfig" and press enter. After opening window of "System Configuration", click on startup

Step 6- Now search that process. Here it is "Microsoft Windows Script Host" in the column of "Startup Item" and in the column of "Command" it is showing its name "wscript.exe"

Step 8- Uncheck this process and then click on apply. It will ask for restart your computer. So restart your computer.

Now shortcut will not be created.

Note- I am telling you how I came to know that this virus can be removed by this trick.

Actually me & my friends were very much troubled by this virus and we have tried many antiviruses but all are failed. So I thought if it creates shortcut when I send files to pen drive it means it is active
now and it may be in "process" list of task manager. So what I did. I have formatted my pen drive and put it into the laptop, opened task manager and from the beginning I have closed a process
which was suspicious and then sent a file to the pen drive. It had created shortcut. Then I was sure that this is not the virus.

Again formatted the pen drive and did the same process for next "process" in task manager. One time I had closed "windows explorer" process and everything gone from the screen, then I had to forced my laptop to shutdown by pressing power button. Some process denied to close. Finally after many attempts I came to wscript.exe. It may be any other name. I had closed it and sent files and there was no any shortcut. I got to know it and disabled this virus from msconfig.

So it is not necessary that its name is wscript.exe only. You need to try to close processes which is suspicious.
