You need to delete the autorun.inf file from the root of the thumbdrive. Once deleted you should inoculate thrives using something like USBSet.

Hi thx for your update, could you please tell me how to delete autorun.inf file from the root.
Thomas Zucker-Scharff

I would suggest downloading and running USBSET (http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/topic/128367-usb-set-14/). It will delete the autorun file for you and put an autorun.inf folder on the drive with a hidden write only file in it (this prevents another piece of malware from easily writing another autorun.inf file to your drive). You should also disable autorun/autoplay on any computer (it is a little less convenient,  but will save you a hassle in the long run).
