Protect your USB pen disk, thumb drive, pen drive or whatever you want to call it by using this small, portable FREEWARE called Ninja Pendisk.
Ninja is the freeware zero-configuration program designed for guarding computers against viruses transmitted by USB pendisks.
This ninja awaits quietly in the system tray for the times whenever a USB pendisk is inserted on the computer which will be examined to uncover the commonly malicious or virulent files known as “autorun.inf” and “ctfmon.exe” amongst many others.
To keep things simple, ninja is fully portable, self-contained and requires no installation.
Besides removing known virulent files, this tool will also immunize your pendisk and create a folder called autorun.inf with special protection permissions to protect your pendisk from being infected again when plugged on contaminated computers.
Get your USB device (and your PC/laptop) protected now by downloading it here.

NOTE: This software is NOT a replacement for anti-virus software. You still need a good, updated anti-virus installed on your PC/laptop.
HOW TO USE ninja PENDISK?
After you've download the software, a software named ninja.exe (with the green ninja icon) is saved on your hard disk. Now, every time you want to insert ANY USB device into your PC, click first the ninja, and only then insert the USB device. You can create a shortcut for this software on your desktop for easy access or you can add this program to load at the startup.
HOW TO LOAD ninja AT STARTUP?
By loading ninja at the startup of your PC, you can avoid forgetting to click the ninja BEFORE inserting the USB device. As an extra bonus, it will protect your PC should anyone other than yourself use USB on your PC. Even better, avoiding you from having to constantly remind (yelling) anyone and everyone before using your PC to click on ninja first ;)= Here's how:
Click on the START button, then ALL PROGRAMS, then right-click on STARTUP, then click on OPEN ALL USERS (see picture below).
A folder will appear and you can now drag the ninja into it or create a shortcut of this software from your hard disk.
WHAT ninja DOES???
If you have it started at every startup like mentioned above it will scan any USB drive being inserted to your PC. It will then create an empty, hidden folder named "autorun.inf" which will delete any nasty autorun in the USB drive. You then have to open the drive manually by going to My Computer.
Now, how about SuperCow entertains you with a soothing melody of banjo.
