Cannot access exe files on pen drive on one PC

hi friends,

I have some antivirus files downloaded on my office PC which I copied and took home but when I am trying to access / install these applications, it is showing error saying" Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have appropriate permission to access the item".

But I am able to use the video files which are avlb on that pen drive.

Please tell where is the error. I am using windows 10 at both PCs.

Then your office pc is infected. This usually happens when there is either data corruption or malware infection. Are you saying same setup is getting detected in other pc?

I am using this pen drive at home and office and the data is correctly showing & working in office pc.
Right click on avast setup file & select properties. Then in properties window, click on digital signatures tab & then click on signature name in the signature list to highlight it & then click on details. It should show digital signature detail is ok.

Meanwhile I scanned the pc with MS defender and found a few viruses and deleted them. But even then the pen drive is not opening.

Open browser & download some antivirus trial setup file(size doesn't matter, it will work even if it is a few mb web installer). Now leave that file in pc for ~1 hour & then check it by right clicking on it & selecting "properties". Then in new window click on Digital signatures tab. In that tab select & highlight the digital signature name under signature list & then click on "details". It should show "this signature is ok" msg.

why there is a lock icon on every file in the pendrive ?

Are u able to copy the file in your windows PC from pendrive ?

There could be two problems either the account access is limited or the file is corrupted.

Install Malwarebytes trial and do a complete scan of the pendrive and your PC.

Yes I can see and use these files when I am using the pen drive in another computer.

I have already tried with Malwarebytes and bitdefender trial versions and none of these show any virus...

copy/paste the file in your home pc and run the installer.

What is the pendrive brand & size ?
