Prevent a virus attack no your computer through USB pen drive or Hard drive

There are lots of viruses available that gets distributed with the help of USB per drives or portable hard drives.

So here is a useful tip which can be kept handy to prevent them from infecting your System.

Do not double click to open a removable drive or the portable hard drive or pen drive. Always right click and select explore from my computer. This is because, the virus would have created Autorun scripts that will get executed when double clicked. The scripts infects your computer with the same virus.

Once the removable drive is opened by selecting explorer, Navigate to Tools > Folder Options > Views. Find the radio button to show hidden files and folders. and also uncheck the option "Hide extensions for known file types"

Now of you find some new unknown files in your removable disk, try deleting them permanently by pressing shift+DEL. If it fails, copy required files from your device and then format the drive.

Hopes this tip helps someone.

Need help formatting new hard drive , Thx in advance Setup steps say "Double-click the Lacie icon in My Computer to get the Lacie Setup Assistant" and that didn't happen .

The LaCie hard drive should have come with a CD. If you pop that CD in, then their directions make more sense:
1: Put in the LaCie CD
2: Double-Click on "My Computer" to open windows explorer
3: right below the "Local Disk (C:)" you should have a LaCie icon for your CD-rom -- double-click this icon for their setup assistant.

If you don't have a CD-ROM, you can still use the drive but it's more involved.

1: right-click on "My Computer" and select the option "Manage"
2: On the left panel of Computer Management, you should have an option "Disk Management" under the heading "Storage" - click on Disk Management
note: The Disk Manager shows your current disks in the top right panel, and ALL disks in the bottom right panel. You might need to resize the window to see them all.
3: In the bottom right panel, find the grey-ed out box that corresponds to your new disk, and right-click on it. One of the options will be to format it.
4: After formatting, if it doesn't automatically come up with a drive letter, you can once again right-click on it in the bottom right panel of the Disk Manager and assign it a drive letter.

Once it has a drive letter, Windows should see the drive and you should be good to go!
