You don’t want to catch viruses while you’re scraping files from your friends’ computers, do you?
So here’s a little suggestion for you… Most viruses transmitted via USB keys use the “Autorun” feature of Windows. Due to this feature, virus in USB memory is also executed automatically and infects your computer. To avoid this, you need to disable Windows Autorun feature. Of course, in this case, every time you insert the USB drive, you must click on “My Computer” and access the USB drive from there and scan for viruses.
