Download Flash_Disinfector.exe by sUBs from Here and save it to your desktop.

o Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.

o The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone. Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.

o Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.

o Reboot your computer when done.

Note: Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don't delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection.

Thanks a lot for your kind help. Does flash.disinfector act for any type of viruses? If not, then please give an effective disinfector/antivirus for flash drive which acts for any kind of virus infection.

No Such Single Tool Exists..
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 26, 2008 7:28 AM PDT

Although the tool Marianna suggested will clean out many of the common infectors of flash drives, there are all kinds of spyware and viruses which can be placed on such drives and then spread to a computer by copying them to the computer..

As such, it may become necessary to scan your flash drive will all your favorite antivirus and antispyware tools. Just like a "regular" hard drive, there is no single tool that finds everything. A few days ago, an infected drive was delivered to me for clean up. It required BOTH SuperAntispyware, Malwarebytes, and McAfee to scan and remove all infected files on the drive.

Hope this helps.
