what do you use to protect your USB thumb drive when you plug it into
an infected PC. I dont have a write protection switch on mine.

It's been a long time since I heard of a virus that spread via overwriting executables, and even if they were still common I doubt you're going to have anything on there they're likely to be infecting.

You should be safe, and even if you're not an anti-virus should detect any viruses anyway. I'm constantly updating my thumb drive so I can't imagine anything spreading that way.
