You will not be unable to access your files on other computers because of the file permissions that go along with NTFS. I would recommend Fat32 if you are thinking of using those files everywhere you go, but stick with NTFS if you want the security.

Im not sure why the volume label appears in blue but im pretty sure its not virus related.
