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.

D drive not open.


If it happens to you that you are not able to open the drives by double click, then your system may be infected with virus. When this virus infects your windows, it automatically creates a autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive. This autorun.inf file is usually hidden, read only and is a system file. This virus also disables folder option. This is not a major problem and can be fixed by deleting autorun.inf file.


  1. Open Start > Run. Now type cmd and press enter. Command prompt window will open.
  2. Type cd/
  3. Type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf
  4. Now type del autorun.inf
  5. Now type d: and press enter for d: drive partition and repeat steps 3 and 4.
  6. Repeat step 5 for all your hard disk drives.
  7. Restart your computer.

Antivirus for ''doomsday'' virus


I had this virus, and the following procedure seemed to work in getting rid of it for me. Hopefully it works for you as well.
open command prompt my going Start > Run and typing cmd.
You should be in a directory called something like “C:\Documents and Settings\User”. if you are not, change to it by typing ‘cd’ and the directory above (replacing ‘user’ with your username), and then pressing enter.
type ‘attrib’ and press enter. There should be a file called svchost.exe, and will have the attributes SHR (which stands for System-file, hidden, and read-only).
type ‘attrib -s -h -r svchost.exe’. This removes the SHR properties and allows you to delete the file.
type ‘del svchost.exe’. This should delete the virus from your computer.
NOTE: svchost.exe is a critical system file if it is located in C:\WINDOWS\System32. If it is located elsewhere (as this one is), it is generally a virus.
Then, insert infected pen drives (memory sticks, iPods etc.) which carry the virus. Change the directory to the pen drive by typing ‘E:’(or whatever letter it is) ENTER. Then type ‘attrib’ as above.
there should be the files ‘protector.exe’ and ‘autorun.inf’ which also have the properties SHR. type ‘attrib -s -h -r’ ENTER, and then delete the files by typing ‘del autorun.inf’ ENTER then ‘del protector.inf’ ENTER. This should remove the virus. Autorun.inf might reappear, but this shouldn’t be a problem.
Do not open the pen drive after you insert it, and cancel any autorun windows that come up.
