Everyone doesn't want computers infected with a virus. The question is, where the virus entered into the computer. There are two possibilities, may be infected from the Internet or external device (flash drive, memory cards, external hard drives, etc). Flash drives are external devices that are often used. When we insert the flash drive to the infected computer, flash drive will be infected with the virus. In a flash drive that is infected, will form the autorun.inf file. Autorun.inf files will work automatically, every flash drive is inserted. Setting the default operating system is windows autorun when inserted an external device. Autorun windows, used by the autorun.inf, to enter into the computer. To protect your computer from viruses, there are a few things done:
1. Update anti-virus
2. Setting anti-virus in the guard position
3. Turn off windows autorun
4. Make anti virus auto scan flash drives

the USB antivirus is very useful you can install it in any computer you have it will protect you from autorun. it scan all usb and flash card also.

Avast also is a good antivirus which you can use.

i also suggest you to backup all your files, document, photos,etc.. after scanning. cause sometime you might get some error from windows. so backup and reinstall a fresh windows.

dont forget to reinstall the USB antivirus after.

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.

There is a much simple way to remove the Autorun.inf file. Genreally when you refresh the windows explorer view a bounded virus process recreates this file. This file is attached to many events of windows explorer including OPEN, REFRESH, etc. Simple stept to remove the virus activation:
You must close opened explorer windows.

1. open up a command prompt (i.e. cmd.exe) >> to load it go to Run, type cmd, enter.
2. Now to remove virus's attributes (in order to delete it type following line by line and execute them pressing enter.

F:\
F:\attrib -s -r -h *.* If there are any malicious EXE files those are now visible so if unnecessary delete them too.
F:\del autorun.inf

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.

Access is denied


Hi
Possible reason is
that your pendrive Contains
An autorun.inf file pointing to a *.exe file(possiblly a virus)

So either you run a scan with good antivirus
or
You can delete the file manually by


> Goto>> Run>>Type the drive letter of your pendrive and follow a full colon(Eg: "C:")
then just enter
now if you cant see the autorun.inf file
you go to folder options to change the view
that is (go to tab view )

1. tick "show hidden files and folders "
2. Untick " Hide operating system files"
Apply it

now you will see the autorun.inf file just delete it

It will solve your problem
