    Default How to protect USB memory drive from virus attack ??

    Now a days most of us using USB flash drive for data carrying. But there
    is a common problem with these USB flash drive for virus attack and spreading to other computer. Is there any way to protect the usb flash drive from virus attack when I plugin the USB flash drive to other computer which I donot know is a infected computer ?

    Recently on right clicking on my pen drive I found that there is a option "Auto" added in the menu. Normaly the 1st option is "Open". I doubt it is a virus or something like, but it is not detected by the Antivirus software.
    Then I have formated the flash drive and get rid of this.

    best is to disable autorun feature...

    and use of goos anti virus like nod32 / kaspersky /....

    and best use >>> right click >> EXPLORE option... instead of double clicking ...

    if u not sure of usb content .. best is not to double click...

    Click Tools-->Folder Options and enable viewing of hidden files. You will see a file called "Autorun.inf". Delete that file and you'll no longer notice the "Auto" in the right click menu.

    I protect my pen drive in college by booting from a live NimbleX cd and browsing in the library.
