How to Prevent Flash Drive from Worm-Virus Infection

One type of annoying viruses that often attacks PC comes from worm variant. Worm usually spreads though removable devices (flash drives, portable HD, CD/DVD etc). It infects your PC once you double click or open those infected devices. To avoid this worm infection, you need to disable autorun feature which is set-on by default.
One of the effective ways to protect your PC from autorun worms is by installing Autorun Protector. In addition, this software also comes with additional features like custom protected autorun.inf file, analysing/removing of autorun.inf & resolving drive opening issue.

Autorun Protector is two way protection standalone software that prevents your PC from infecting with autorun worms and also protecting your removable device from being infected from other sources. Hence, it decreases the spread of the worms.

  1. This program does not help you to clean all type of autorun worms. It is to protect your PC & Device from infecting the worms. If your PC is already infected with autorun worms, I suggest you to clean the worm first by using anti-virus program or do a clean reinstallation of operating system.
  2. Make sure you have administrative access to run most of the task below. Some task might require a restart to take effect.
  3. If you execute the program and encounter Application Error message indicating “The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application”, you will need to download .NET Framework 2.0 and above in order to run this program.
