Insert your USB drive in the appropriate USB slot in your computer.
If the Autoplay dialog box appears, select "Take No Action" and click the "OK" button.
Launch your anti-virus program, such as AVG Antivirus or Anti Malware.
Select the USB drive for the program to scan.
Click the "Start Scan" button or option.
Open the scan history for the USB drive when the scan is complete to see a list of viruses and warnings identified by the antivirus software.
If desired, select the options to "Heal All Infected Files" or "Move the Infected Files to the Virus Vault" to ensure these files are quarantined from your system.
Highlight each infected file in the scan history.
Write down the file name of each infected file identified on the USB drive.

Close the command prompt window; that is, exit the Run utility.
Maximize the window for your anti-virus program (which is still open) and repeat Steps 2 to 7 until no virus is detected on your USB drive.
Exit the anti-virus application.

Make ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus Auto Scan Flash Drive


Everyone doesn't want computers infected with a virus. The question is, where the virus entered into the computer. There are two possibilities, may be infected from the Internet or external device (flash drive, memory cards, external hard drives, etc). Flash drives are external devices that are often used. When we insert the flash drive to the infected computer, flash drive will be infected with the virus. In a flash drive that is infected, will form the autorun.inf file. Autorun.inf files will work automatically, every flash drive is inserted. Setting the default operating system is windows autorun when inserted an external device. Autorun windows, used by the autorun.inf, to enter into the computer. To protect your computer from viruses, there are a few things done:
1. Update anti-virus
2. Setting anti-virus in the guard position
3. Turn off windows autorun
4. Make anti virus auto scan flash drives

Turn off autorun Windows

Win Xp : Press START - run - regedit - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer - NoDriveTypeAutoRun - Value Data - Type = ff - OK

Win Vista / 7 : Press START - Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Autoplay - uncheck "Use Autoplay for all media devices" - SAVE.

Userinit.exe application error


Hi again:

I would suggest that you may have a virus / spyware infection that has infected this windows file.

If you can boot into SAFE Mode ( reboot the computer) and when the screen goes to the black background with white writing start pushing F8 - keep doing so until you get a screen that gives you a list of things you can do -
ie:
restart windows normally
safe mode
safe mode w/networking

use the arrow keys on the keyboard and choose to boot into safe mode.- may take a couple of minutes

once there i would suggest running virus / antispyware scans as well as running a BOOT SCAN (a type of virus scan that scans the hard drive before it gets into windows)

NOTE on running virus/spyware scans - ALWAYS QUARANTINE the file infected - DO NOT DELETE - if you delete a critical windows system file you will cause windows to completely crash and in that instance you would have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall everything.

Hi, I haven't used this drive (Toshiba 250GB


If retreiving data is not your expertise, I suggest you take it to a local computer guy and extract it. The drive could possible be corrupt or password protected. Try best buy.

Western digital my book 320gb not recognised


Try first disconnecting all USB ports and power plug for half an hour, this will get rid of eventual problems caused by electrostatic charges on usb channels.
If it does not work, this means that the virus has corrupted your Windows System, probably the root hub is defective.
In this case you will have to reinstall windows, either using recovery, from disk or partition, or using a Microsoft windows setup disk. Save all your data before reinstalling.
