Hi, when I follow your suggested approach, I do not get the "storagedevicepolicies". I only get "storage" under the control tab. Is there a way to add this particular tab to my system. I run a Window Vista HP desktop.
Thanks for any advice you may give me.

if you have transcend pen drive infected by 9u.exe which is a write protect virus then the following works like a charm:
1) download JetFlash online recovery from:
2) run the program
3) specify the capacity of your drive eg.512 MB, 1 GB .....etc
4) choose "repair and erase all data" OR " repair and keep existing data"
5) progress bar starts.......completes
6) notification appears ---" format complete"
7) unplug and plug your drive and .....presto


by the way I am just a doctor by profession

Thank you very much. It was indeed a virus. I've serached everywhere for almost 6 hrs. and your solution was the only thing that's perfect. :)
I have solved my problem using the following procedure. Follow this once.
To remove write protection:
Open Start Menu >> Run, type regedit and press Enter, this will open the registry editor.
Navigate to the following path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies Double click the key WriteProtect in the right pane and set the value to 0
In the Value Data Box and press OK button
Exit Registry, restart your computer and then again re-connect your USB pen drive on your computer.
It worked to me.

Good luck
I tried but failed. Best solution is through it in to waste bin and buy another exept sandisk.
