Title: How to protect your USB from getting infected by Virus
Post by: Timi Dapsin on December 23, 2013, 12:29:40 PM
AS an IT repair guy, i often have to disinfect computer from malwares.
 So i need my tools to be on my USB to do my job, unfortunately some systems have malwares that infect my USB flash/pendrive right away after i insert it.
 Of course , i dont want to format my USB and recopy all my tools after each interventions...
 There is some solutions/alternatives to that like:
 - using a media disc (CD, DVD, etc...): of course it is safe but quite expensive if i need to update my tools.
 - using a USB with write-protected switch: the simplest method, but a bit pricey especially if you already have many USBs.
 the free solutions available are:
 USB WriteProtector (
 USB Defender ( (i am using this one, thanks to Littlebits)
 Windows Autorun Disable by SecurityXploded v.1.0 (
 MCShield (
 of course , they are not the perfect solutions, but better than nothing ( :D protect
