    Hi there,

    In order to scan another machine I need my USB jumpdrive. This machine is probably infected with several virae (virusses in normal language!) ;-)

    Does anyone know about a way to make a USB key read only?
    Or is there another trick to make this key secure for virusses?

    Surely some virusscanners know how to handle file i/o to and from memory sticks?
