remove Autorun.inf Virus

How to remove Autorun.inf file?

Follow the steps below to remove Autorun.inf from Pendrive:
Manual way:
1.) Open Notepad and do not write anything in it. Go to File > Save as autorun.inf
2.) Copy the blank autorun.inf file that you have created in the above step and paste it in your “Pen Drives”
3.) Remove your pendrive.
4.) Re-insert your PC. Now your pendrive is safe to use.
Automatic way:
1.) Download Panda USB Vaccine which allows users to vaccinate their PCs in order to disable autorun completely so that no program from any USB/CD/DVD drive can auto-execute.
2.) Download Flash_Disinfector.exe and save it to your desktop.
• Double-click Flash_Disinfector.exe to run it and follow any prompts that may appear.
• The utility may ask you to insert your flash drive and/or other removable drives including your mobile phone.
• Please do so and allow the utility to clean up those drives as well.
• Wait until it has finished scanning and then exit the program.
• Reboot your computer when done.
Flash Disinfector will remove any autorun.inf files; create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB drive plugged in when you ran it. Don’t delete this folder. It will help protect your drives from future infection.
