If you have a autorun.inf virus on your memory card/USB stick the anti virus software on your PC may not allow access in order to stop it from spreading.

First you need to disable autorun feature on Windows operating system :

Follow steps in link :

http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-disable-autorun-autoplay-in-windows-7-and-windows-8/

After disabling the feature you will have access to your memory card/USB stick. The next step is to delete autorun.inf virus file hidden on your memory card/USB stick. But first you need to make the hidden virus file visible.

Follow steps in link to show hidden system files :

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/show-hidden-files-in-windows-7/

Now navigate to your memory card/USB stick you should see the autorun.inf file - DELETE IT.

(If it doesnt allow you to delete it - restart the PC in safe mode by pressing F8 on start up and choosing safe mode and try again)

Back up your files on the memory stick/USB stick to your PC and to make sure the virus is gone from the memory stick/USB format it using your PC.

Dont to forget re-hide your system files to prevent accidental deletion.

Good luck!

On some SD cards there is a program you can run. This will allow the PC to see the SD card files. The autorun.exe file may have been that file or it pointed to another directory. Typically you only need a smart card reader to see the files. if the PC can not access any of the data as stated. Plus a virus.... the data may well be corrupted.

However if corruption by a virus has occurred this utility may allow you to recover those images.

Supposed to be free.

Please be careful if you use this file.
Scan it for viri just like you did with the SD Micro card.
I have not used this program but welcome any reports of success.
Who knows, it may very well help others and myself in the future.

Good luck!

How to remove Autorun.inf Virus ?


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

I am using a Transcend 8GB USB Pend Driver. when i scanned it, it showed me that, find "rahulvirusprotection.vbe". Hence i delete it immediately. After deleting the virus, i tried to access the...


It is virus which uses autorun feature of the removable devices such as USB Pen Drive. These type of viruses usually have two files. (a) autorun.inf and (b) the executable (.exe) or script file. Some Antivirus programs delete the exe file but the autorun files remains. In your case, the exe file (rahul's virus protection.vbe) has been removed but the autorun entry is there, which is run everytime you try to access your pen drive. First, plug-in the drive and DONT OPEN IT. Open 'My Computer' , right click the pen drive and choose explore. (This would by-pass the autorun feature).

Download Flash Disinfector 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. 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)


Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

How 2 delete file autorun in my system without appearing in futur


When your computer automatically creates a "autorun.inf" or "autorun.exe" file on your pen drive, you have a virus. This is the way it multiplies itself in order to infect other computers. First, do a virus check and disinfection procedure on your computer (use a strong antivirus, like Kaspersky - they have 30-day free trial). After that, plug in the device, and now try to format it. It should work, if your computer is not too affected.

I use a cruzer 4GB to go between my Mac & my work PC. Now, on windows, it says I have a possible worm virus. When connected to my Mac - there is no virus. Something to do with something called...


I believe that Windows is having an issue with the information in the autorun.inf file.

The entire sequence is initiated when the "disk change notifcation" polling discovers a new disk in the CD or DVD ROM drive. Then, if the "Auto insert notification" feature is enabled (it is by default), Windows checks in the new disk's root directory for the existence of an "autorun.inf" file. If found, Windows then reads and follows the specific instructions this file defines. If no autorun.inf file is found, then Windows refers to the new disk by its serial number and executes the default actions associated with the (data or audio) content on the disk.

My suggestion would be to delete the autorun.inf file as it is not needed.

Usb flash drive icon changes into folder icon


This issue may have resulted from a virus infection on the machine the drive was plugged into.

You’ll need to delete the file autoruns.inf located on your flash drive.

By default, Windows hides this file, so before you can delete it you must make a couple of changes (you may reverse these after you’ve finished):

Open My Computer
Tools
Folder Options…
Click on the View tab
Under “Hidden files and folder” choose “Show hidden files and folders”
Remove the tick from “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)
OK

Go back to My Computer and click on your flash drive. If you can’t open it that way, try right clicking on it and choose “Explore.”

Find the autoruns.inf file, right click on it and choose “Delete.” Confirm “Yes.”

Unplug and re-plug the drive in. You should be back to normal.

Hope that helps.
