I'd recommend scan it with anti-virus software, and then, if you can, scan each download, installer, wizard, and program individually on the pen-drive and REMOVE every detected idem.

A few important bits of information about using faults and possible fixes on usb drives


click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X

you will need to update/reinstall drivers

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts

(I have found better results ticking the first box then reurn and tick the second box) you should not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage this drive also you might need to do this


click start click to open on my computer you should see your usb drive F: right click select properties there will be an array of options select the sharing tab option then advanced sharing make sure you have a tick in the share this folder box then click permissions make sure you have full control in windows 7

getting a repair software form the manufacturer website will rectify the problem which is free in most cases and works ONLY with a genuine product any other will not work.
