I had to use my thumb drive recently on a public machine and, of course, a virus ended up on it. Thankfully either Avast or Panda sealed off the Trojan - LNK/Agent.BZ trojan - but unfortunately this also means I'm unable to access 15 of the 16 gigs that has lots of data I want to copy off of it. I hope somehow there's a way to scrub the Trojan and make the rest of the drive safe again, granting me access to the whole thing.


Frustrated by Malwarebytes and Avast (free versions installed on laptop - Lenovo G400 running Win 7 64x bit) not being able to even show me what was up, I did a free online ESET scan and was shown this - check out my screengrab.


So where to go with this? Any help is appreciated.

Free trials will typically not have full capabilities as retail. They may not have real-time, web, e-mail ,heuristics functionality. Or, Detect, but not repair the files. They may not update as often etc.


However, you can still try to run it through a barrage of different antivirus tools. I wouldn't recommend installing more than one antivirus. Some do have stand alone portable tools.


Here's some links for you.
