Unless you put something on there that is capable of damaging your computer like some form of active virus / trojan / etc I cant see how it would screw up your computer.

Start with your computer alone and ensure it is free from any virus / spyware or other undesirable. note that you will need more tan one program to deal with the issues I have listed

for antivirus Kapersky, ESET, NOD are about the best (norton and mcafee rate badly)

for spyware etc. then malwareantibytes and superantispyware are my
choices.

Once you know YOUR computer is 100% clean you should disconnect as many external items as possible that use USB or FIREWIRE.

Then plug in the drive
at this point do not try to look at the contents just use the programs you used to clean your computer to check out the drive.

If it checks out of you should get anything you want to keep off it.

You are now ready to format it.

Go to control panel / administrative tools / computer management / disk management. Note that we have not looked at the drive at all and will not until we are done.

Make sure you select your external drive. You should be able to right click on that drive and select format when it offers the type select FULL format and also turn off the assign drive letter option before you click ok and when its done you should be ok and where you want to be
