Help! SOS A malicious virus converts all my folders into exe

Hi. I have a USB pendrive 8GB kingston, in good shape, and with lots of information with virtually all sensitive data.
But the pendrive got infected by a malicious virus or trojan from another computer. Not sure. But once i inserted the pendrive into my home PC, all the folders in the USB pendrive were converted into exe files while some other folders dissapeared.
The only antivirus i have at hand is Norton Internet Security 2010. In order to solve the issue i did the most obvious action for a newbie like myself, so i did scan the USB drive but Norton was unable to find the virus.
I really dont know what to do?. But i think the same happened to other people. I have lots of sensitive data on my pendrive. What should i do?. Is there any webtool or software that can restore my files?
Please help! .SOS! (I do have Windows XP latest service pack SP3, and my processor is an AMD64 athlon, 1.5 GB RAM)
