Hi there, sorry if this is in the wrong section, this is my first post! A couple days ago, I was infected with a virus. I don't know the name of it, I just remember clicking "allow" when a notification window popped up asking for permission for googleupdate.exe. Anyways, I immediately turned off my computer, opened it in safe mode, and backed up my important files onto 2 of my USB drives. Then I took out my USB drives, turned off the computer, and then recovered my computer to its original factory state. So currently, my computer is virus-free and back to new. But now, I'm scared to use my USB drives and plug them into my computer to retrieve those files. Will the USB drives have the virus on it and then infect my computer again? What should I do? Thanks in advance for your help.
