Does the problem happen with multiple different USB sticks or only the one? If the problem happens with only the one USB stick then that would eliminate your AV software as the issue. If you haven't tried any other USB sticks it would be helpful if you could try another to see if it behaves the same way.

The fact that the problem happens with multiple computers also tends to make me believe that the issue is the stick itself, coupled with the fact that you get the message to fix corrupted files when you plug it in. Have you tried answering yes to that question?

Since chkdsk doesn't seem to be working for you, you might try a 3rd party tool such as this one: Data-Doctor-Recovery-Pen-Drive. I've never used it so can't attest to how effective it is but it would be worth a try.

Strollin has some good suggestions - please also follow upon that.

The chkdsk output should look like this:
