How to Protect Your Computer from Virus-Carrying USBs?

My laptop used to be called the "Laptop ng Bayan" because I always lend it to those who are in need. (Naks! Philanthropist.) It was always passed around and a number of USBs were plugged into it. So, you can expect that after the rounds, viruses will be thriving in its system. That's when I started to acquire some skills in solving virus problems. I did manual deletion from the registry, tried different antiviruses and practiced techniques to prevent the virus from spreading. But then I discovered the Deep Freeze, USB Disk Security and USB Firewall. I had already posted how the Deep Freeze functions.

The USB Disk Security and USB Firewall are applications that detects viruses from a USB/Flashdrive once it is plugged into the computer. It will alert the user on the existence of the suspicious files contained in the USB and will offer the option to stop and delete them. It works as good as antivirus but it cannot protect the whole computer system from malicious programs, only the removable drives.

The USB Disk Security monitors in real time, can examine the USB drive thoroughly, can repair the registry and cleanup your drive, and it can show the list of startup programs. The downside of using this is it does not go through the subfolders on which viruses can also hide. You have to do the USBScan for thorough scanning.

Download USB Disk Security The file is not a shareware but it contains the serial for the full version.



The USB Firewall can clean your disk drives and remove the autorun.inf file in them. Though it only says detection of autorun.inf files, it also detects other malicious programs once they attempt to launch.

Download USB Firewall. The file is freeware, no need to register.

I have the two applications running in my laptop along with Kaspersky. The virus attacks lessened because I was able to detect some of them before it enters my laptop.

Hope you find it useful too.

  1. It sounds good that the USB Disk Security monitors in real time, can examine the USB drive thoroughly, can repair the registry and cleanup your drive, and it can show the list of startup programs.
