Symantec popped up and told me it found a virus on my computer and it put it in the Symantec AntiVirus\View\Backup Items folder.
I went there and found 3 instances of two viruses each. They are:
(Risk) W32.Downadup!autorun; (Filename) Autorun.inf; (Original Location) e:\ {Flash Drive}; Status: Infected; Date: 7/28/2009 8:22:23 AM.
(Risk) W32.Downadup.B; (Filename) qvwtndm.dll.inf; (Original Location) e:\ {Flash Drive}; Status: Infected; Date: 7/28/2009 8:22:24 AM.

There was another entry just like above but @ 8:42:46 AM and 8:42:47 AM
The 5th and 6th instance of the above same files was on 6/11/2009 with only 1 second between the e drive and hard drive.

I've cleaned the hard drive but am not sure of the best way to clean the flash....
Any assistance greatly appreicated... Thanks...
