    I have this USB that I use on all computers at work. This has all the applications, utilities, anti-viruses etc that I need. I run a workgroup of 30 PCs. Every now and then a colleague comes with their or a friends laptop asking me to remove viruses/ install programs etc.

    Now when i plug in the USB, it immediately gets infected. Before it was that hide file and folders in that unnamed folder. But now it is that cc**f** virus that goes onto corrupt files.

    Question :Is it possible for my USB to be protected from being written to until i want to? Just remain read-only so I can use it for installation on any type of computer.

    Nothing complex. Simple stuff will do.

    Thank you
