Think you have a flash drive infection but not sure

Your best option would be

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

just found it....somewhere (i'm not even try it yet.....)

In some situation especially when anti-virus program has cleaned,
healed, disinfected or removed a worm, trojan horse or virus from
computer, there may be error happening whenever users try to open
or access the drive by double clicking on the disk drive icon in Explorer
or My Computer window to try to enter the drive’s folder. The problem
or symptom happens in hard disk drive, portable hard disk drive or
USB flash drive, and Windows will prompt a dialog box with the
following message:
Windows Script Host
Can not find script file autorun.vbs.
Sometimes you will be asked to debug the VBScript with error code of
800A041F - Unexpected ‘Next’.
Choose the program you want to use to open this file with:
In this case, the “Always use the selected program to open this kind of
file” option is grayed out.
The symptom occurs because when autorun.vbs is created by trojan
horse or virus. The virus normally loads autorun.inf file to root folder
of all hard drive or USB drive, and then execute autorun.bat file which
contains script to apply and merge autorun.reg into the registry, with
possible change to the following registry key to ensure that virus is
loaded when system starts:
Finally, autorun.bat will call wscript.exe to run autorun.vbs.
When antivirus or security software detected the autorun.vbs file as
infected, the file will be deleted or removed or quarantined. However,
other files (autorun.*) and registry value still referring to autorun.vbs,
and this document no longer exists, hence the error when users
double click to open a drive folder.

To correct and solve this error, follow this steps:

1. Run Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del or right click on Taskbar)
2. Stop wscript.exe process if available by highlighting the process
name and clicking End Process.
3. Then terminate explorer.exe process.
4. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
5. Type “cmd” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click OK.
6. Type the following command one by one followed by hitting
Enter key:
del c:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del d:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
del e:\autorun.* /f /s /q /a
c, d, e each represents drive letters on Windows system. If there
are more drives or partitions available, continue to command by
altering to other drive letter. Note that you must also clean the
autorun files from USB flash drive or portable hard disk as the
external drive may also be infected.
7. In Task Manager, click on File -> New Task (Run…).
8. Type “regedit” (without quotes) into the Open text box and click
9. Navigate to the following registry key:
10. Check if the value name and value data for the key is
correct (the value data of userint.exe include the path which
may be different than C drive, which is also valid, note also the
comma which is also needed):
If the value is incorrent, modify it to the valid value data
