Try formating in safe mode, as well as make sure that all the programs and utilities are stopped before formating it( you Can use Task Manager for that) ,Use an updated anti virus program for scanning it from viruses.

1. Open Notepad and do not write anything in it. Just go to File > Save as (save it with the name: autorun.inf)
2. Copy the autorun.inf file that you have created in the above step and paste in your "Pen Drives"
3. Remove your pen drive.
After removing the pendrive, re-insert in your PC. Now your anti-virus will not detect any virus in your PC. And Your pendrive is 100% safe to use.
