Hi there,

I connected this usb flash pen:
http://www.sony.it/product/sm-micro-vault-entry-level/usm2gjb#pageType=Overview

to a pc with the free antivirus AVG wich detected the trojan dropper.vb.yk and removed the file E:\run\autorun.exe

Actually no pc (win xp or win 2000) is able to recognise my usb flash pen, and i can't even format it!

Any suggestion?
Tks...

The USB drive doesn't look like anything special. Check in Disk Manager if it shows up there, and see if you can wipe it clean.

The autorun shouldn't even matter, it should show as just another disk.

Try booting from a Knoppix CD and see if you can do something with it there...
