    now, there's nothing wrong with the flash stick. I cleaned it, but, there's a problem with Google Chrome, an extension is flagged as a malware or so.

    Remove Chrome and install it again.
    If its not within your extensions this should help.

    Don't forget to remove data, you won't loose anything important if you have synchronisation.
