USB flash drive has been disabled

Specs: xp, 250
No PC will read this USB flash, but I see its got a virus on it.
Avg will not delete the third virus
E:\RECYCLER\S-5-3-42-281990-8240758988-879315005-3665\jwgkvsq.vmw ,Trojan horse Generic12.AHXY
, I find out what this virus does , it disables reading the USB flash drive.

Avg only managed to delete 2 other viruses on this
usb drive ,only through safe mode.
Avg will put it in its virus vault, but after I rescan , the same virus is back on. Any help getting rid of it ,would be appreciated.

This worm sites on your computer aswel as the USB device. I suspect AVG is only cleaning the USB files. You need to find and clean the malware process on your PC before attempting to clean any external devices.

1. Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
2. Double click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
3. Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
4. Select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
5. When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
6. Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
7. When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.
8. The log is automatically saved by Malwarebytes and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab.
9. Please be sure to paste the content of this log file with your post.

1. Use an online system scanner to double check for malware on your computer.
2. You can use ASquared, HouseCall, ESET
3. If malware is detected and your are given the option to remove it, go ahead and do so.
4. Remember to post the results of your system scan.

1. Download TrentMicro HijackThis and save it onto your system.
2. Run the HijackThis application.
3. Press "Do a system scan and save a logfile".
4. Paste the content of that log file into your post.

Let me know how you get on.

autorun eater did not even find my usb stick !! - New!

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware did not recognice my usb stick

Hijackthis did not find my usb stick.

I have been told this could be the new conflicker virus.

I thought I just fixed it , and then crap !

I had all my permissions back to the USB after I plugged it into an Apple Macintosh PC. All my files are still there and I was able to view all contents of my text files, and was even able to write new ones to this USB. Then I deleted the e:RECYCLER and e:autorun, with the option of "Move to trash" because that's what Apple Macintosh PC does not delete files like Windows does. So Apple Macintosh PC red that the file was gone and in the trash, but when I plugged the USB back into the Windows based PC , same thing happened again , plus this time its got these other new weird files in it that I can not deleted.
Folder E:.Trashes(greyed out as hidden)
Files E:._.Trashes(greyed out as hidden)
Files E:.DS_Store(greyed out as hidden)

So now I am back to square One.
And now when I plug it back into the Apple Macintosh PC , it does not even recognize it like it did before !
