Having your computer infected with viruses and trojans is a frustrating experience. With the massive usage of pen drives, the viruses are having their day giggling with their kind of fun than in the past. The use of USB pen-drives and removable storage devices from one computer to another increases the rate of virus infection.
Sometimes even if you say that you cleaned it either by top of the line anti-virus softwares (most of the time they do not even detect them) or by formating the pen-drive itself, the infected pen-drive failed to heal. Pen-drive viruses are a pain in the ass, a really stubborn lot. Pen-drive manufacturers should introduce an in-built anti-virus system in their future pen-drives as a mean to fight the virus menace that affects their products and the end-users. Though I suppose the virus, trojan and spyware creators would still find an ingenious way to wreck the life of computer users.
Whatever. Here are some USB removal tools you should have without fail. They actually worked to heal your computer system.
Use the tools at your own risk. I am not to be blamed in any way for any system failure and disaster after you use the tools.
