My 16 GB HP pendrive is write protected ( we didn't do it! ) by some trojan/virus that infected in it. My McAfee AV is detecting the trojan but can't do anything about it since the pen drive is write protected.
I have searched and tried all the immediate solutions found on internet, editing the registry and trying various USB format tools but none of them worked.
Is there any way I can format and recover the pendrive?
I am using Windows 8.1 OS.
