Good flash drive protection?

My school laptop seems to be bringing baddies with my school flash drive. I've installed MSE on my school laptop and I run Kaspersky at home. Kaspersky seems to be removing the threats but every time I plug my USB into my school laptop and plug it back into my PC, it brings back unwanted guests.

MSE has detected 5 threats and removed them although I'm not so sure because.. well, I'm still getting threats! (School computer)

Anyways.. to the point. What's a good security application that I can install onto my flash drive so that this doesn't happen again?

Hi, Nikolay.

I suggest you use USBNoRisk to clean up the USB stick. Instructions follow.

Download USBNoRisk to your Desktop
  • run it by double-clicking the program's icon
  • wait a couple of seconds for the initial scan to be done
  • connect all of your USB storage devices to the PC, one at a time, and keep each one connected at least for 10 seconds
  • if there are more USB storage devices to scan, please take a note about the order in which these were connected

Explanation: USB storage devices are all the USB devices that get their own partition letter at connecting to the PC, e.g. flash drives (thumb/pen drives, USB sticks), external HDDs, MP3/MP4 players, digital cameras, memory cards (SD cards, Sony Memory Stick, MultiMedia Cards etc.), some mobile phones, some GPS navigation devices etc.
