    Default PC malware/spyware on my 13" macbook pro?

    Hey what's up forum peeps?

    No, they aren't causing any havoc. But I do have a bit of a problem that I'm unsure of how to solve.

    I have a thumbdrive that I share between PC and Mac. I inadvertently got (what I think is) some malware/spyware on my thumbdrive without realizing. I had about 4gb worth of data on the thumb drive that I copied over to my Mac because I was trying to backup some old data.

    These files aren't having any detrimental effect on my computer since they are exe files. However, I'm unable to move them to my trash! How can I delete them?

    The names of the files are:

    guefae.exe
    fuefue.scr
    guefae.scr
    autorun.inf
    toddr.exe

    I cannot delete any of them off of my thumbdrive, or my Mac.

    What do I do?

    Thanks.

    Todd


    *EDIT: UPDATE

    I was able to delete the files off of my macbook pro. But I still cannot delete the files off of my thumbdrive. How can I delete these files off of my thumbdrive?

    what happens when you try and delete them? If it says something like access denied, launch terminal, and type
    Code:
    sudo rm Path/To/Files
    .

    Backup the USB Drive with all the Files you need, then Format it, then put all your Data back on
