Hi,


I think my flash memory key might have some sort of malware on it.


With what should I scan it? Are there online scans that can scan just the memory key, not your whole computer? (something like panda scan...)
Which ones should I use? Or should I just use something like AVG/adware/spybot?


All suggestions are welcome,


Thanks in advance.

Phil.

Incase if you are unable to open your C, D, E , F drives then you are infected by a flash infector, to get rid from this you need to download the flash disinfector tool from here http://experi3nc3.wordpress.com/2007/05/10...fector-by-subs/

I dont know what do you mean by memory key but if you mean the memory items then yes there is a scanner called as super anti-spyware (free) which has got the memory scan

An easy way to scan USB Flash Drives is to download "ClamWin Portable Antivirus", put it on your USB Flash Drive, update its definition files and perform a scan.
