I have windows os and there is a autorun.inf something hidden file in my all drives.my avira antivirus has blocked that file.and i want to know that is the file safe or it is going to harm my pc.what...


Autorun.inf is the primary instruction file associated with the Autorun function. Autorun.inf itself is a simple text-based configuration file that tells the operating system which executable to start, which icon to use, and which additional menu commands to make available. In other words, autorun.inf tells Windows how to deal open the presentation and treat the contents of the CD.


That being said, it would depend on what it is trying to run automatically. If it is trying to run iTunes automatically that is one thing, but if it is running a virus automatically it would not be safe.

You can right click on the file, and edit it with notepad/wordpad to find out what program it is trying to run.

How to remove autorun.inf in your flash drive or hard disk

Sometimes for virus or trojan horse you may difficulties opening your drives. Your autorun.inf is infected if you find any abnormal language when you right-click on a drive. This autorun.inf file is hidden and you will not see the file even though you select to show your all files from Folder Options.

1. Goto Start --> Run and type cmd then click OK.
2. If you want to remove the infected file from drive C: then type C: then press Enter.
3. Type "autorun.inf" and press Enter.
4. Type "del autorun.inf" then press Enter. The file is in the drive but not showing or you can't delete it now.
5. Now type "attrib autorun.inf -s -h -r" and press Enter.
6. Now delete the file by typing "del autorun.inf" and press Enter.
7. Restart the computer.

Good Luck!

How do i remove autorun virus?


Hi dear, you can remove your autorun virus without anti-virus just follow my instructions.

>>>> Open your command prompt and give these commands; for example if you have only one drive

>>>> D:/>attrib -s -h -r autorun.inf (and then press enter)
>>>> D:/> del autorun.inf (and then press enter)

Now take a reboot and after rebooting autorun virus will have been removed.

Note: if you have more than two drives you should change with D: like E: or F: or G: etc. and then give this command again and again for each drive and in the end take a reboot.

Now your drives have been cleared from autorun virus.

Good Luck

for more information you can contact me back.

My D & E drive is not opening on double click.


hey gaurav, this problem happens only when there's a virus on the drive. Use Avast antivirus to delete all **** out.

you get it for free on avast.com and once you register on the site, they send you the serial to your mailbox.

Just for free doesn't mean that its weak, or something.

I've tried norton, mcafee, and the like....and all have failed in front of Avast!

And no, i'm not advertising here...All major tech houses recommend it (Digit, Chip magazines in india).
