oky Posted November 1, 2006 Share Posted November 1, 2006 I recieved a 512mb Flash Voyager from a friend, and have tried to use it on various occasions. However, each PC I plug it into alerts that the file I:\RECYCLER\RECYCLER\autorun.exe is infected with a virus. I have formatted the flash drive using the simple right click - format command various times, the EZ Recover utility, the Corsair Flash Utility software, and through the command prompt, however I still recieve the virus warning each time I plug in the drive. I am not sure if this is some sort of software malfunction regarding the PCs I plug the drive into, but I find it hardly believeable that each and every computer that I try to format the drive on is incapable of formatting it correctly. Is this some sort of inherent software that allows the flash drive to work as a bootable drive? Is it part of a hidden partition that I am unaware of (although I have repartitioned it various times with the Flash Utility software)? If this is just me and AVG and Norton Antivirus being paranoid about inherent software, please let me know so that I can start using the disk again, as currently I am too weary of spreading the virus/worm to my work-related computers and co-workers to use it again. Thank you for your assistance and time :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
