USB - Access Denied

By Skeltpl ·
I recently had the W32.Ircbrute virus on my USB device. I removed the virus but now when I plug my stick in to my computer and try to open it from my computer it says "Access denied". However, if I use windows explorer I can access the files on my stick. How can I fix this issue?

Click Start, Run, type cmd and press Enter.
<br>
type cd x: [substitute x for the drive letter assigned to your stick) and press Enter.
<br>
type dir /w/a and press Enter.
<br>
look for a file named autorun.inf and if it is there,
<br>
type attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf and press Enter.
<br>
type del autorun.inf and press Enter.
