I tried to open my USB. Wont open because is showing as folder and i am pretty sure is infected with a virus. I tried going through properties view folder and show hidden icons, none show up. I had to go through my USB through windows explorer. It wont let me open on regular "My computer"

I tried formatting and wont work, any solution to fully format my usb and get it working?

Tried formating through command com and still dont work :/ Wont open. Tried check dsk to see what was in there, and there was 5 hidden files. But i put properties to show hidden files, did not show anything.

Any last resort? :/

Right after i format it, it works. When i pull it out or eject it, it shows as a folder again.

My usb is Kingston 8GB
