Windows 7: USB Protection

USB Protection

I am not sure if this exists but if anyone will know, it will be Seven Forums users.

I have to bring office documents that I create at home to work, so I load them on one of my USB drives. The problem is that work gives me a different laptop to use every time and they are not so good at keeping the protection for these computers up to date and who knows how many different people are using USB drives on them.

Is there a way to write protect my USB drive which has no hardware switch on it?

I don't like plugging it back in at home even though the first thing I do is scan it with Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0.657.0.

Thanks for your help
