    attachment not working pls upload image on www.imageshack.us and then paste it in forum.
    If you have avast, update it to the latest virus definition and run the boot time scan.
    Or download antivir antivirus and run full computer scan

    Thats because ur PC has teh virus not the Pen Drive.

    Ways to clean virus:-
    1> Get Avira free version + latest updates
    2> Be Offline
    3> Turn off system restore (it would clean the instance of virus from system memory)
    4> Install Avira+updates.
    5> Do full system scan
    6> Install Adware (oh d/l it too :-D )
    6> Get online

    After that Install RemoveIt Pro (free for single user, doesn't auto update, but good)
    Scan with it too.

    IMO, best free security solution: AVG8+Adware+Komodo (resource hog, but will keep u safe)

    I hope that would do ur job ;-)
    Please follow above steps.

    When you do get your pen drive cleaned, I'd recommend using Panda USB Vaccine. It will prevent the virus from infecting your pen drive again.
