I had the flashdrive installed for the purpose of settings for Verizon and the computer got infected. I took the drive out and did a clean install. How can I know whether the flash drive is clean or not? The only thing on it was the Verizon settings for setting up wireless etc. My computer is clean now and I am not using that flash drive. Is there a way to format that flashdrive without possibly reinfecting my computer. I'll throw the flash drive out before I risk infecting the computer again.
No I didn't take any steps to see if flash drive was infected I had forgotten about it. It was plugged into the USB with only verizon files for remembering the computer settings for wireless etc, nothing else was on it.
Could a blank flash drive get infected or is it only certain files on that flash drive could attract an infection?
