Memory sticks suddenly won't work

Specs: Windows Vista
Suddenly none of my memory sticks will work in my lap top. It says 'application not found'. Last week they all worked fine and they still work on other computers. The USB ports all work with anything other than a memory stick. What can I do?

Try restoring your computer to a earlier time that worked.

application not found' means it is trying to run a program from the memory stick. Usually a virus. When the host computer is fixed this error comes up. Make a folder (FOLDER) not a file on every flash drive you have called autorun.inf.

If it complains then you have a file called autorun.inf and it contains some commands. See those commands for what this issue is.

A restore point might bring back the virus so check the drives first.

Hang up and live.
