My pendrive restarts the computer? Any help?
My pendrive hangs my computer and restarts it. As soon as i insert it the computer restarts. I tried shutting off the auto-restart but still the computer restarts. I have an up-to-date antivirus installed. Is there any hope of retrieving the data on the pen drive?
plug the pendrive into another computer. If it does the same thing, there might be a virus on the pendrive and is best to be checked out by a technician (warn the technician about the pendrive). If the computer doesn't do the same, scan the contents of the pendrive for any viruses and if none are found, make a copy of the contents on the desktop, format the pendrive and then put the contents back on and run another scan. Hope this helps!
Better check for any viruse in the pendrive.
If not check for any hardware issues in the computer.If required update you pendrive firmware and try again.
