I am sorry to hear that your USB pen drive got a virus. If the message you get when you are cleaning or reformatting the drive is password protected, the drive is very much finish. I would suggest you to buy a new one.
Unfortunately, you can NOT access your user data and applications on the device without a password.
If you think you are entering the correct password, ensure that CAPS
lock or NUM lock is not turned on. You should try to type your password
in another application (like word or email) to ensure that it is being
entered correctly. This can help you see if CAPS lock, NUM lock, or a
sticky key is causing the password to actually be entered incorrectly.
Password attempts There's a set number of attempts before U3 locks your device and you have to reformat it. Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.
If you set a hint when you enabled the password protection, click Hint
in the log in window to display the hint you entered. If you did not
set a hint or still can not remember your password you will have to
reformat the drive. Reformatting will delete all files and applications on the flash drive.
It is recommended to keep a backup of all the data on your U3 device on your PC for safe keeping.
Hi amrani_811, Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing? After you reformat your pc, you need to install the drivers. you can install the drivers by using the drivers disc that came with your pc or you can download it from the computer manufacturer's website (example: http://support.dell.com). By the way, what is the brand of your pc or motherboard? Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.
Hello Janine Weltk! All the drivers for your Asus P5KPL-AM motherboard are available on the Asus website. The link for your motherboard is P5KPL-AM Click on the Download tab, choose your operating system from the pull down menu and you will be given a list of all the proper drivers to download.
if you buy a new mother board your motherboard might be needed to reformat sometimes, this is because of the drivers that are installed already in your hard disk...if you are able to login to your computer then go to control panel and remove old drivers and install new drivers... in this case you will be needed to format your hard drive...
