I followed these directions after some fighting with my USB drives and what appears to be the RECYLCER virus…

Download the Flash Disinfector at http://download.bleepingcomputer.com//sUBs...Disinfector.exe and save it to your desktop. Double-click on it to run it and follow the on-screen instructions.

This is what happened when the proggie tried to come down the pipe…

That is a false positive

Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive that was plugged in when you ran it. Do not delete this folder...it will help protect your drives from future infection by keeping the autorun file from being installed on the root drive and running other malicious files.

It's flagging that file as suspicious
