I see your concern is about viruses. Autorun feature in the computer enables the opening of virus infected files when USB is inserted. Just disable Autoplay through this step:

1.      Type Windows Key+ R and type Gpedit.msc

2.      Click Computer Configuration> Administrative templates> Windows Components> Autoplay Policies

3.      At the Details prompt ,double-click “Turn off Autoplay”

4.      Select the “Enabled” radio button, select “All drives” in the Turn off Autoplay box .This does what you wanted.
