so for those that don't know, I suggest googling Conficker virus--- a creative plague that copies itself to any USB drive to spread very, very effectively.   It ravished the computer on the back desk and so I had to put on an admin password to keep the computer from being junked up and further infecting the virus.  I removed it now and autoplay is also disabled.  but I suggest people check their USB drives for this.  The tell signs are:

1- USB drive has a folder icon
2- computer wont let you show hidden files and folers
3- microsoft website access is disabled 

the Conficker Removal Tool (download free at CNET) works very simply to remove this.
