Immunize Computers against infected USB drives and Vice versa.
My laptop (Dell-Windows XP) has just been declared clean thanks to one of the BP consultants here.
Part of avoiding re-infection in the future, I would like to ask one vital question. It was mentioned to me about Panda USB Vaccine and BitDefender’s USB Immunizer. Now that my dear computer is clean, can I now install one of these two and immunize my laptop in case one of my USB drives is (will be) infected. Once I do that and plug my USB drive, I would like to check that this drive is as clean as my laptop. Besides Trendmicro, malwarebytes, superantispyware that I have already installed on the computer, are there any other software I should run on the external drives. As I have never used Panda USB Vaccine or BitDefender’s USB Immunizer, do these two also allow immunizing USB drives to avoid them being infected by any viruses that could hit the computer in the future? Any body has experience with these two protection tools. If so, do they change files in the PC or they don't?
Thank you so much for your help.
