Nowadays, Flash Drive is one of the most suitable data storage device. But it is also one of the main reasons why we always caught computer viruses. To prevent it, you can look on the steps below:

1. If you can, avoid using a flash drive that you think is infected with virus.

2. Scan the USB flash disk before you use it.

3. Do not use or insert your USB flash disk on public places like in public cyber cafes, school computers and more. You can transfer files from school to your computer through emails.

4. Create autorun.inf folder under the root directory of your flash drive to avoid getting viruses. The virus cannot change the folder which is a good way to prevent autorun virus.

5. Ensure that you update your antivirus software and regularly scan your computer and USB flash disk.
