    then your PC is infected, or you selected the 'quick format' option which did not eradicate it in the first place.

    Turn off autorun in your computer and do not double-click on the USB drive.

    After formatting the USB drive on a clean machine, make a new folder named autorun.inf and the virus cannot copy a new autorun to it, as the folder is the same name as the file.

    # Open "My Computer" and then open the USB drive.
    # Look for a folder called "RECYCLER". If you have it, you may have an infected drive.

    * DELETE IT!

    # Look for a file called autorun.inf. This is the file that tells the virus how to run.

    * DELETE IT!


    # Reformat your USB Drive. This is the only way to totally get rid of the really deeply hidden parts of the virus.

    * Right-click on the USB Drive and choose Format?
    * Do NOT select the option to "Perform a quick format."
    * Keep the other default settings, click Start, and then click OK.
