    I'm using 8GB card on my Lumia 535. Recently it was full and was unable to format using mobile. So I open it using PC and it had lots of hidden files which seems to be virus. After formatting SD card and hard resetting the phone, it continuously hapenning.

    the hidden files could be map files, whatsapp cache, app data or anything else. Viruses for windows 10 mobile are unheard of at the moment. It could be more likely that your pc has a virus which then jumped to the sd card

    Even if its virus it can't affect windows phone system. Try formatting sd card with phone itself and is your sd card class 10 or above ?

    did you plug your phone to a PC before this happened? as the mobile OS does not recognise EXE files and have it's own sandboxing for each app, can anyone tell me if this is possible?

    Just guessing by the fact it is only 8gb, but is this an old card? It might be tired of living.
