How to Protect PC from USB Virus


How to Protect Your Computer Against USB Virus, Malware

Lets face it, USB thumb drives are marvelous tools for temporary data storage while computer viruses has long been a pain in the a*s. With gigabytes of data that can be stored inside USB removable thumbdrives, people are swapping files between computers like crazy nowadays. However, this way of file sharing makes it even easier for viruses to infect your computer. I’ve seen an computer got infected by a virus just by plugging the USB thumb drive into Windows XP (with autoplay enabled) and the havoc it caused can be pretty scary. Some of the installed antivirus just failed to scan these kinds of viruses, which makes the matter much worse.
In this article i am going to show you 2 free software applications which prevents your computer to get infected with nasty viruses an worms like Conficker (aka Downandup, Downadup and Kido!) which have spread already to over 9 million computers mostly through USB pen Drives.
1. USB Virus Scan – The world’s fastest and smallest antivirus software
USB thumb drives and removable hard disks are now common throughout the workplace. They have considerable storage capacity and great for productivity.

USB Virus Scan provides fully USB security solutions , it not only allows you to gain full control of every usb port, but also provides 100% protection against any malicious programs trying to attack via USB storage.All data in your computer and usb drives will get fully protection provided by USB Virus Scan.
2. USB Guardian – Scan USB for Worms and Viruses
USB Guardian allows you to safely enjoy file sharing using just an USB thumbdrive for copying the files . Movies, mp3s, documents and pictures can be copied from one computer to another without worrying of getting infected with worms and viruses trough USB drive.
