Are you able to see it with MSE or another security product? If so, err on the cautious side and scan it with them to rule out FP.

  • Double-click on USBVaccineSetup.exe to install the program to C:\Program Files\Panda USB Vaccine.
  • Read and accept the license agreement, then click Next.
  • When setup completes, make sure "Launch Panda USB Vaccine" is checked and click Finish to open the program.
  • Click the Vaccinate computer button. It should now show a green checkmark and confirm Computer vaccinated.
  • Hold down the Shift key and insert your USB flash drive.
  • When the name of the drive appears in the dialog box, click the button to Vaccinate USB drive(s).
  • Exit the program when done
-- Computer Vaccination will prevent any AutoRun file from running, regardless of whether the removable device is infected or not.

-- USB Vaccination disables the autorun file so it cannot be read, modified or replaced and creates a hidden AUTORUN_.INF on the flash drive partition as protection against malevolent code by preventing a malicious autorun file from being installed. The Panda Resarch Blog advises that once USB drives have been vaccinated, they cannot be reversed except with a format. If you do this, be sure to back up your data files first or they will be lost during the formatting process.

Hi all. I wonder if anyone could shed a bit of light on a slight dilemma I'm having. The other day my bank phoned me up and said the software they tell all customers to download (called "Trusteer Rapport") had flagged up my computer as infected with Malware, namely "CerberusNG" and "SpyEye"....
