If you really believe it's a virus, I strongly suggest that you create a new thread and post it in the virus/security section of the forum and please, this time give the full details so that we don't waste your time.

Hello,

Try this 1

Right-click on your pen-drive --> Select the option "Explore" --> if is gets

opened, backup your data and format it.

If the problem still exists then

Click on Start --> In the search box, type diskmgmt.msc and click on OK.

Disk Management will be opened.

Then right-click on your pendrive ---> Select "Change Drive Letter and

Path.." --> Click on "Change" and assign different drive letter.

Change the volume name by right-clicking on your pendrive and select properties.

Enter your volume name.

Good Luck.

Thank you
Did you try opening it in a different computer.

If in the same computer, try using other USB ports.

Sometimes it happens, pendrives don't open in some USB ports and they do in others.
