    Default pen drive usage

    I used to download docs in my pen drive and take it to some net cafe' for prints as i don't have a printer.Invariably in Net cafes the shared computers there are infected.After a session of such prints when i inserted my pen drive into my PC, even before i opened the pen drive to delete the downloaded file, a virus entered the PC without waiting for any command from my end.I had to seek expert help to remove the virus.from my PC.I find the experience terrifying. How to avoid such happenings.The pen drive gets infected and on inserting it in my PC,its too get infected.Can you suggest safer ways of handling this situation.

    This may help. If you'd rather it was done automatically, try this instead. It's a free download.

    Good luck.
