Another Tip for Removing Flash Drive Viruses


Hi PC users, here is a simple tip on how to remove viruses from flash drives, you only need to find a PC with Windows ME installed as the operating system. Plug the flash drive in and set the folder options to view all files. Manually Delete all viruses files, usually .INFs and folder looking .EXE files. (just delete questionable files there which you don't need and have not created). I know its rather hard to find ME machines these days, but if you do find one. Take the advantage and remove those viruses on your flash drives. Just make sure the ME machine is virus free.

Tip

Preventing Reinfection of Virus for newly installed XP.


Hello XP users, Hi, here is a tip of how to prevent viruses from reinfecting your PC, the virus is well usually comes from your USB flash drives, and or your back up files from your hard drives as I assume you have a Drive D: Here are the things you should do so that you will not get reinfected.
Im assuming you are using XP
1. Reformat/reinstall again your OS and as for your Hard Drive, set 2 partitions, for system this would be drive C: and for Data, this is for drive D:2. After installing the XP (you now at this point have a start button) caution: do not use any flash drive or open your other drives, set you folder options to Show all files and Folders.
start->my computer->tools->folder options->view on the hidden files and folder, select Show hidden files and folderand uncheck the two checkbox below, (this is hide extension and hide protected .... )apply and or OK
3. Run GPEDIT.MSC from the RUN option
start->run then type GPEDIT.MSC then OK
4. Under Group Policies, goto administrative templates -> system -> turn off autoplay then enable select all drives -> OK ->exit
this will make the autorun.inf functions not to load automatically. This option makes the virus not to load automatically. caution again, at this point be cautious of what you will DOUBLE CLICK.
5. install an antivirus software, (any freeware will do, but i prefer the AVAST one)
your PC is now protected from reinfections.
you can now scan ALLl your drives and flash drives.
You can also manually delete the virus files on your drives. they are usually folder looking files, usually 743/744 bytes. You can also see some recycle bin ICONS with unusual names (who created them?) If you did not create them, erase them files.

Run SEARCH on all drives except C: with all .EXE files and under the what size is it? select medium. then click search.
on the search result, delete all the folder looking .EXE files with 743 or 744 bytes (usually).
caution one more: before opening a removeable flash drive, do the SEARCH thing on this drive.
Your done. = }

How do I get started using a USB flash drive and how do I set up a security system?


hey, heres something that would help u:  Copying files to a flash drive on a PC:
  1. Open My Computer and see which drives are shown. Most computers, for example, have a hard disk such as a C: drive and a few removable storage devices such as a floppy drive, a CD-ROM drive, and perhaps a zip drive. 
  2. Insert the flash drive into the USB port and watch to see where the USB flash drive appears. Most will appear as removable storage, but some will instead appear as hard drives. Note the name Windows is using to refer to the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  3. Open My Documents or the location from which you want to transfer files to the flash drive. Select the files or folders you want to save to the flash drive by left-clicking on them. To select more than one, hold down the CTRL key while you click and select all of the files you wish to save. 
  4. Right-click on the file(s) or folder(s) you selected, then select Send to, then select the name you saw appearing in My Computer for the flash drive ("Removable Disk (G:)," for example).
  5. When the copying is finished, do not immediately remove the flash drive from the USB port. Instead, left-click on the Remove Hardware icon toolbar.gif located in the System Tray. A window containing a list of the USB devices will appear. Left-click on the Safely Remove Mass Storage Device line that matches your flash drive (for example, Safely Remove Mass Storage Device - Drive(G:)). 
  6. When you see the following message appear in the bottom left toolbar, it is, as it says, safe to remove the flash drive from the USB port; you may close the message or ignore it, as it will close itself automatically:

I have a 128MB USB Flash Drive from Simple Tech. My files have become corrupted and unreadable--Don't ask me how (I've no idea). I deleted everything, but cannot delete one folder, because inside there are...


It sounds like you're trying to remove everything on your flash drive and start over from scratch. The characters that you are seeing are corrupted files. This is usually caused by power fluctuations when the computer is accessing the date on the USB drive. What you need to do is to run a complete Format on your USB drive to remove everything and reset the USB drive so you can use it again.

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!
Please send your votes & feedback to motivate us!
