Default How to Write Protect a USB drive

I just got a USB drive, and i forgot to buy one with the manual WRITE PROTECT feature!

My USB has been hit with one too many viruses.. (those that writes to your USB disk, or alters executables as soon as you plug your USB in)..


So is there a way to do this via software?
