Recover Pendrive Files Infected by Shortcut Virus in PC (Windows)

Question : I have a flash drive and used it to save my favorite pictures and some important documents. But in this morning when I connected it to another computer, it was affected by a virus and turned to shortcut. This accident brings me many troubles. My files, images, folders in the pen drive are just shown as shortcuts and not inaccessible. I was wondering is it possible to recover those shortcut files? If it is possible, how can I do it?

Now I am extremely desperate because I have tried all the method suggested, by unhiding the files, install and run software to disable autorun, as well as antimalware. None of them works. If you know some effective way to recover files infected by shortcut virus, please help!
