A virus?

Not too long ago I brought down my thumbdrive to a print shop to have some stuff printed out. The guy there plugged my thumbdrive in and then later on told me that my thumbdrive had a virus. He said that if he right clicked and selected explore, and a window doesn't open up or it asks what program to open with, then the folder has a virus.

I just found out that if I right click, explore, my hard drive, it asks me to select what program to open it with...so what do I do?

The description is the opposite of my problem...

For me, the folder opens when I double click it. However, not when I right click and select explore...and I kept scanning the folders with AVG...all updated too.
