Flash Memory Virus

By ummtalal ·
Can anyone help how to make my flash memory safe to use again. The university that I work in has picked up a flash memory virus which when you try to open anything on a flash the computer immediately closes. The infection is automatically transferred to every new computer then that the flash memory is plugged into. I am therefore not prepared to take the risk and plug my infected flash into my home computer until I know I have protection against this new virus. I use Zone Alarm Security Suite 6.5

Download the linux iso file from any linux website.Burn the iso to cd using the create image funtion in your software.Then boot from cd and delete the contents of the usb key.A virus cannot infect a cd and your hdd will not be running.
