  1. hey guys!

    i just want to ask if there are some good free Usb protection antivirus that u can recommend? recently my PC was attacked by several viruese and malwares and i believe i got it with my USB drive...the most annoying is RECYCLER.exe and some autorun.inf files which makes my LOCAL C inaccessible..

    thanks in advance guys :)

    Use the same protection you normally use... just find ways to access the media to run it.

    No problem...
    I wish I could recommend Avast, but it's for a "U3" stick and it's only good for 60 days.:(

    USB devices can infect when mounted just like the old floppy disks.
    If you disable autorun, then that is not possible and you can scan the media
    with your A/V product before you run anything
