Question about Computers & Internet
What type of operating system you are using? If it is a Windows XP's or vista it is a "Plug and Play" i.e automatically detects the type of device that's been attached and, if needed, automatically installs the appropriate drivers for it.
Windows "Plug and Play" plays very well with USB. Chances are installing your USB flash drive means simply plugging it in, and letting Windows do the rest. (It may ask you for your Windows installation CD to get drivers.) When done, you should find another drive letter on your machine that is the USB drive.
To be clear, you should definitely review any documentation that came with your USB device.
While flash drives and other "disk-like" devices tend to just work, manufacturers of other devices often have you install their software on your system before plugging the device in for the first time.
So just check the materials that came with your new peripheral.
Your taskbar should notified you that new hardware installed ". Click on that, select the device you wish to remove, and Windows will do things like flush the disk buffers and ensure that from the operating systems point of view it's safe to unplug it.

Insert the USB flash drive into one of the USB ports on your computer.
Momentarily a small prompt will appear saying the computer has detected a new removable device.
Insert the antivirus software installation CD into the disc drive of the computer to launch the installation wizard.
If you downloaded the program, double-click the downloaded file to launch the installation wizard.
Read through and accept the license agreement, then click "Browse" when shown the installation location.
A search window will appear on the screen. Choose the USB flash drive and click "OK."
Click "Next" for the installation name and select "Install." The antivirus program now will install onto the USB flash drive
hope this helps
