Last few days i lend my flash drive to my friends to copy my college assignment
then when i plug in the flash drive the flash drive doesn't work anymore

I have 3 USB Flash Drive and 2 of it maybe have been corrupted by virus or malware
and I can't delete the files or format the pendrive
Its say " Write Protected"
I had tried many ways to solve this problem
Using software, cmd diskpart, diskmgmt.msc, edit the registry
I also use Avast Antivirus to scan the pendrive but its just stuck at there never move 
All can't solve this problem
The other pendrive is working fine 
Here is my attachments of the scan, logs and photos 
Any help would be grateful for me

Hi sorry for the delay could you do the following please :

Download MCShield to your desktop and install
It will initially run a scan and show the result as a toaster by the system clock
Then in the control centre select scanner and tick unhide items on flash drives
Plug in the drive and McShield will start a scan

Then get the log which will be located under the logs tab on the main page

And post that


Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Select additions at the bottom
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please attach both logs generated.
