Hi all,

Before seeking further help on a previous, potential but still unsolved virus/malware problem, I first just have a technical, hypothetical question:

Is there *any* even remotely possible way that I (or a tech. guru helping me) can search my windows registry or other kind of log to find a list of files that were on a usb/jump drive that was plugged into my computer but, hence the problem, not plugged in/available anymore?

Specifically, Iím wondering if this is at all possible b/c I know that windows will often do a quick auto scan/search of folders (even files?) on a usb drive when itís initially inserted.

If youíre curious for the long story: I wonder if something somehow infected or otherwise damaged my sys. performance when a student of mine a while back plugged his drive into my computer when originally he was only trying to give me some late assignments. . . . Anyway, with all the previous tech. help Iíve had that unfortunately could not resolve this problem, I was wondering about this methodóso that there may be a way of first seeing what was on that studentís darn jump drive in the first place that may have caused any of my sys. problems.

Thank you!
