How to avoid getting virus in your flash drives or pen drives?


Well virus normally gets in your flash drives (pen drives) by putting it to an infected computer... this happens most of the times & you bring those virus home making your life miserable...
Some anti-virus deletes all your infected folders as soon as you put it into the USB (thus deleting all your important files inside them)

What to do?

Before you know this, just take note that those virus attack your folders mainly in 99% cases.
The trick is to either not put anything in folders in your flash drives OR if you put them into folders, compress the folder by programs such as 7-ZIP, Winrar, Winzip etc
You'll see that your documents will be safer!

I am unable to delete Rahul'virusprotection.vbe and Autorun.inf in my pen drive .Sometimes deteled again immediatly come to my pendrive


Please follow these steps to Remove Virus using Command Promt:

Click the "Start" menu and type "CMD" into the "Run" box and click "OK."

Select the drive that is infected with the virus. If you are not sure which drive is infected, start with the "C:" drive. Type in "C:" and press "Enter" to access this drive.

Type the following into the command prompt box: - s - h *. * /s /d and press "Enter." This will bring up any suspicious files located on the drive. Open the suspicious file.

Look for a file that contains a ".exe" file and a file titled "autorun.inf." If you find these two files, you have found the tainted file. Make sure to write down the name of the program where the file is located.

Rename the "autorun.inf" so you can access the drive later without activating the virus. Type: rename autorun.inf as virusfile and close out of the "Command" prompt box.

Double-click the "My Computer" icon and select the drive that has the infected file. Find the program that contains the infected file.

Right-click on the program and choose "Open."

Right-click on the file you renamed "virusfile" and choose "Delete."

Right-click on the ".exe" file and choose "Delete." You have now removed the virus from your computer's hard drive.

Hi i got your issue ....

VBS/Jollybeecute, also known as Jollybeecute virus or Jaw-ly-bee-cute, is a VBScript worm that infects computers running Microsoft Windows operating systems.

The worm propagates itself through removable drives (like USB flash drives, pen drives, mp3s. etc).
Once executed, the worm will display this message (in broken english perhaps):hi how are u.....

To remove VBS/Jollybeecute, download WormBlaster. Goto AutoRepair, click Built-in Killers button, and select Jollybeecute Remover.

Click Run BlasterScript to initiate the removal process right away.

Thanks .......
With regards ......

Unable to open Pendrive


Your pen drive is infected by a virus/worm. I have two solutions for this -   > If you have WinRAR software, just open up the pen drive using this and delete "autorun.inf" from it.  OR  > Use any good antivirus software and scan your pen drive, and disinfect the pen drive from any virus/worms. Remove your pen drive, and insert it again. It'll work fine.
