Hi

Today, AVG detected and cleaned Trojan Horse Spam Tool.BZK from my USB flash drive when I plugged it into my computer (I used the flash drive on somebody elses PC which must have been infected).

I scanned the flash drive again, and it is now clean.

HOWEVER, when I try to acces the flash drive in Windows explorer:
1) the icon for the flash drive is now a folder, not a drive
2) when I click on the flash drive icon, I get an error message saying "H:\ Access is denied"
3) I have to right click on the icon and click "explore" to acces the drive

I am running Windows XP on my PC.

Any idea how to fix this? Has the flash drive been damaged or have system settings just changed?

Thanks
