Delete autorun inf virus 4gb


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!

If your Pen Drive is infected with any of the following viruses:
  • Autorun.inf
  • new folder.exe
  • Iexplorer.vbs
  • Bha.vbs
  • nfo.exe
  • New_Folder.exe

How to check whether a virus has effected a PC


Most common type of virus disable the windows capability to show hidden files. To check whether the computer does not have virus , goto My Computer > Tools (Tab) > Folder Options > View >

Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders"

Click apply and ok

Again repeat the same procedure and check whether the selected "Show hidden files and folders" is still active or its been return to the "Don't show hidden files and folders".

If its still active then it means virus has not effected the system of at least you could delete the hidden virus files.

If it automatically return to the "Don't show...", virus has effected you system. Then go for a good anti-virus software.

I'm unable to find some important data stored in my Sandisk micro cruzer. I'm not sure if I accidently deleted it or if it is corrupted. Please suggest if there is a way to recover the files.


If the pen drive is working, the data is there and can be recovered. I think it could be due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files and the space available for use is less than the capacity.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may show the hidden files. Otherwise, you can use any data recovery program to recover the data. Please not that you should not sav/write any data to avoid overwriting the existing data.

Hope this helps!
