USB plug in times

On an OS newer than XP perhaps you have such luxury? On XP it doesn't give any obvious clue when it was last used - other than if you copied files to or changed files on the USB thumb drive then those are logged as part of the files themselves via the date/time stamp.

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

it's definitely not recorded in Event Viewer for Win 7 or 8.

Backup now & backup often.

There is no USB history listing in the OS that I am aware of. What I would suggest is downloading and installing BelArc Advisor, it's free. Not only does BelArc give you a detailed listing of your computer hardware and software, but it also includes a 30 day USB history that details the date, time and what devices were plugged in.

Can also cause problems if people by user-inflicted mistake delete the wrong thing - make a System Restore Point before playing with it, unless I'm confusing it with some other NirSoft tool being there's so many.

Good warning, don't use it to delete just to see the last plugged date.

My USB is not working. I think a virus infected it. Is there anything I can do or should I buy a new one?

 

Start here, one of those linked forums can help:

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

If you plugged in an infected Flash drive, your P.C. may be infected ready to infect any new ones you plug in

not a good idea to use someone's unrelated thread, start your own so others with similar problems can benefit from suggestions.

 

maybe a Mod can rectify this for us.... :)
