My uSB has a virus on it but I need to get all of the data off it on to my laptop. If i copy all of the files will this copy the virus too? I have up to date virus protection on my laptop, will that make it ok?
run a virus scan on the drive and that should pick up the infection and you can remove it
which OS are you running? What anti virus are you using? Usually you should disable stuff like auto run from CD and USB
