Autorun Trick

This is to share you guys a tool that I came across on the internet. This application is called autoruns. If you are thinking that this software will just disable autorun.inf, you are wrong because it can disable almost ever automatically running exe, services, and even dll.

Why use this application?

1. Remove Virus / Malware
- There are viruses that enters in you start-up and you can use this application to disable it. Actually sometimes it is better to disable the virus rather than deleting. When you delete a virus it might come back, but when you disable it, it is still there but it is not running.

2. Small but terrible
- The installer of this software is only 581kb yet it can do so many trick to your PC.

3. Easy to use and Safe
- Autoruns has a user-friendly interface. The configuration take effect immediately after you have unchecked an item yet it can be revert back by just checking it again. ^^

4. Approved by Microsoft
- As a matter of fact, Microsoft posted this application. So I believe they have tried it already and also amazed by the power of this software. ^^

5. Powerful
-The application let you edit your registry without browsing your registry all the time. You can double click the item that you want to edit and viola! you will be redirected to the registry of the item you select.

6. Best of all Speed-up your computer!
- You can disable some application that you don't really need to start when you open your computer. This will not just speed up your start-up but will also save up memory and cpu usage for faster processing. Not everything can be changed in the msconfig but with Autoruns, YOU CAN! ^^

This is a must try application that might help you in every way. ^^

Hope this help you with your problem.

When the executable is run on the victim's machine, the worm copies itself to the following locations:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
    "(Default)" = "%Application Data%\remove.exe"
Symptoms -
  • Presence of above mentioned files.
  • Presence of registry entries mentioned above.
Method of Infection Method of Infection - This worm spreads by using autorun.inf on shared drives and removable devices.

disk not accessible

its probebly because of some virus
you didn't mention that your home network is using internet or not
if yes then probebly you get any vrus from net which is not allowing to see you your disk drive
find any good antivirus and scan your hard drive
dont relay on your exixting anti virus it might not working now
and one more thing to do
whichever drive you can not open try to open it from run
start > run > c:
it shows you c drive in case of c drive 's problem
now find autorun.inf and delet all content from it and save blank autorun.inf
sothat your os will work on its own and not relay on autorun.inf
try this out
