I have disabled and re-enabled the drive and restarted, etc multiple times. I downloaded Holoiso, a community-made steam deck OS, and flashed it with BelenaEtcher. I then put it on my PC and failed to get it to work after watching multiple videos on how to get it to work so I then decided to go back and format the drive and it said the drive was locked and unable to be formatted. Are there any ways I can get this thing Formatted? I am also very very very confident it was not some sort of virus. By the way, it is a 32 GB Lexar USB Flash Drive.

Try using Diskpart. If it doesn't work download any 3rd party Partition Manager such as one from Paragon and the format partitions to FAT32.
