I would reformat the drive. If you can't reformat,be sure to delete any .exe files and be sure to check the hidden files for anything that is exe. I would scan the drive withcan antivirus software also.

boot up the computer with a linux live cd and format the usb drive in linux. a windows virus wont do anything on linux. once you format the usb drive all of the data on it will be gone.

hold shift while inserting the drive. Autorun is disabled while shift is held. Should only take about 15 seconds for the drive to fully load as a drive and 'not' autorun.
