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.

Theoretically, you can't format a more than 32 GB drive with FAT/FAT32 file system. In your case you have to choose the NTFS file system to format your 64 GB USB flash drive. However, if you really need to format it with FAT32, you got to use the command line or a third party tool. Hope this is going to help you.
