For the past few months everytime I used one particular pen drive every computer networked to whatever I was plugged into started to crash or have serious problems over the coming days. I became suspicious that something odd was happening on the pen drive.

I just switched on the 'view system files' thing and noticed I had the following:
infrom.exe
a file called NT Config which included ldup and ld program looking things

I opened the My Safe folder in my new lap top and noticed the same programs had found their way in there!

And then I checked my old pen drive and found them on there as well. How do I get rid of these, and anything else problematic, for once and for all?

Thanks. I've been saving these questions up.
