Default Virus detected on my flash drive

I have a SanDisk Cruiser Lock 2 and every time I open it detects a Trojan horse generic2.LBS
It says:
Virus detected while opening file:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wcdrtc32.dll
How can I get rid of this virus?
& is there any danger for my PC?
Thanks

first off, its not on your flash drive. notice the path name of the file. c:\ is the root directory of windows, not the flash drive's. just delete that file....

Well I do have an antivirus (AVG) and it detects it evry time I use the flash drive.No matter what I do-heal or remove the file from the virus vault -it keeps coming again and again!
I did find the file and deleted it but it didn't work-the virus is still there?What else can i do?

Thanx for your advice.I did run it in safe mode but it didn't work again...not only that but now I can not even open my files?!
Every time I try to open my flash drive it's showing me the following message:
Startup Failure:
CLZ1020:Cannot locate the application in its required location:G:\SecurDataStorRM\Files\SecurDataStor.ex e
Any ideas?
thank you!

you could try reformatting the flash drive, only problem with that is if you have any important files then they'll be deleted.

just go into my computer, right click on the flash drive and hit format and then just go from there.

speedy05 that really is not advice that is going to help him right now. And also, he may have just gotten the virus from an opened email.

Well, how did the reformatting go? Did it solve the problem?
if worst comes to worst, you can call the manufacturer and ask them hwo to go about completely formatting your flash drive.

try the usb drive in another computer and see if the virus thing pops up there just to be sure its actually on the drive so you dont format for no reason.

no i dont think you should try it on another computer because if it is a virus thats spreads when used then you will just infect other computers and then your going to be screwed, i agree with the reformatting then running the anti-virus program, thats probably your best choice then make sure you try and find that infected file also and dont just go through deleting things on the computer because from past experiences i deleted a file from /c: and i completely messed up my old computer it did the same thing and made it to where i couldnt open any other files
