Vhinz_dprinz, To answer your question if you're using a USB flash drive, I would assume that you have a PC that you're using as well. Your PC should have an antivirus installed on it, if so you can open up the control panel of your antivirus program and set it to scan it. I'm sure you're well aware that once you plug the flash drive in, it pops up as a removable drive, you can then tell your antivirus program to scan that particular drive.

Now another thing that you can try is installing AVG antivirus, it's a free download for personal use, you can set the program to auto-scan your harddrive and any other removable drives attached to it. Normally you should set it to scan at night while you're sleeping and not using the flash drive. Let me know if you need further input on this issue. Goodluck

I have a Toshiba flash drive. I used to plug in to computer and it would ask if I wanted to scan, now I plug in and it opens automatically. It will not let me add information and save. A message comes on...


Hi uva5,


This seems to be a problem as a result of auto run virus which has probably infected your flash drive, an autorun virus modifies the autorun.inf file in the root drive of your flash drive so that it can execute commands that are mentioned in that file, most probably , it will execute a .exe file which is hidden in your pen drive by the virus so that your flash drive malfunctions and takes up much of your memory , i.e. physical memory used to run programs faster to which we call RAM.

I would recommend you the following steps to make sure that your drive is functioning properly.

  1. Do a through scan of your flash drive and make sure that it's virus free , by a reliable antivirus software , there are some good ones available for free, I would recommend you download AVG free version if you don't have one , so that you can use it to scan your flashdrive. http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition-2011/3000-2239_4-10320142.html
  2. After you scan your flash drive , and the anti virus heals the detected viruses or deletes them , you should not have this problem.
Hope this helps.
