Protecting and securing from viruses is always a challenging task. Lot of viruses occupy space in disk and degrades the performance. USB Hard Disk and Flash Drive play a major role in spreading viruses. In this paper we discussed about preventive measures to avoid spreading viruses from USB Hard Disk and Flash Drive to system. Initially we discussed about stand alone system protection and then Anti – virus software for virus detection. Third is taking no action while connecting USB drive and manual deletion of viruses. Finally we discussed Preventive measures to avoid spreading viruses from USB Hard Disk and Flash Drive.
