Write Protected Pen Drive Due To Trojan Virus [Closed]

Hello,

My USB pen drive says it is write protected when I try to copy files onto it or even when I am trying to format it.

A scan of this drive by my anti virus tells me there is a Trojan Horse Generic Virus detected but the same is not being rectified by the anti-virus programme.

Can you please help me with a solution to this issue? What should be done?

Appreciate a quick response

Hello,

Permit me to intrude into your discussion.

If Sundar's solutions do not work, try this:

USB Fix will delete infections on all removable devices, repair damaged security functions, such as registry access, task manager, hidden files and vaccinate your device against future infections.

1. Download

http://www.teamxscript.org/usbfixTelechargement.html

Once on your desktop, double click the installation icon, a window will appear, uncheck all items that are checked because they are not necessary.

2. Using Win 7 you must deactivate the user account control

3. Plug in your pen and all other removal devices susceptible of infection.

4. Double click on the USB Fix icon (Looks like a seringe.)

5. Click on the deletion button and leave the tool work. The start menu and desktop icons will dissapear, don't be alarmed, it's perfectly normal

If a message asks you to reboot, please proceed. Upon rebooting the tool will continue to work.

When finished a log will open with a report on the work done.

Good luck

P.S. The log will be saved in C root
Deleted files are stored in C:\UsbFix\Quarantine .
Your drive will also be vaccinated against future infections by creating autorun.inf (vaccination)

Try this,go to start and type

cmd and press enter

Now copy and run this command


REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR" /v Start /t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

Now download this tool and format your USB

Let me know how it works
When I type cmd and right click, I do not get any option to Run as an Administrator!

Also, keep geting a Write Protect Error when I insert the USB, which I was not getting earlier!

Please help.

type

command prompt-right click-run as administrator
Stil Cant see the "Run As Administrator" option! Neither after typing in the start screen, nor whilst I am in the Comand screen!
Wish I could do a screen print and paste it for you to be able to see what options I am getting.
this may sound stupid , my device ( an old YP-T9 , samsung mp4 player ) had the same problem
I accidentally right clicked on the device then on the " turn on bit locker " after it did something and asked me an option , I simply canceled the operation , and after that , it was fixed !

it may be useful for some of you
