    I can't find any information about a virus that affects USB ports specifically. Also, in order for anyone to fully understand your situation, we need to know your operating system, software, and what measures you have already taken. Have you done a virus scan lately? Are your virus definitions up to date? Do you have security patches installed? Are there any other problems with this machine?

    Did Norton find anything? If so go to http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/ and read about what it found, that will tell you what you're up against.

    Go to Device Manager and check the status of the USB ports.

    Hello azeem_144 and welcome to AO.

    I seriouly doubt if you have a USB "virus", if you do, might I be the first to reserve a copy

    As suggested, run an online scan (PC-Cillin) also update your AV and reboot into SAFE MODE (F8) then run it overthe entire system with all optrions enabled (scan inside compressed files, heuristics on, etc.)

    Then try these: download, update, reboot into safe mode..................

    Good luck

    "mm" means "mass mailer", W32 means Windows 32 bit processing etc.

    Might I suggest that you open a new thread in something like "newbie security questions" and list the terms you do not understand?
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Let me ask something smart... What problem are you experiencing with your USB ports? Because apparantly something is wrong with them, yet none of us knows what is wrong with them. For all we know, you might have faulty hardware... Or a missing driver... Or maybe there isn't anything wrong, but the thing you're trying to use works differently than you expect.

    So, what problem do you have with the USB ports? (Or USB device, if it's limited to one device.)
