    Arrow Remove Autorun.inf Virus from pendrive Easily - Without Antivirus!!

    Anyway, As we know Our Antivirus (Basically, Avira, Avast, AVG, etc), Only detects Virus i.e autorun.inf whenever you insert your removable disk (Pen Drives). But our AntiVirus can’t disinfect it nor delete it.

    Hmm, the autorun.inf is hidden and it can’t be remove or disinfected by Anti virus.
    I have a Funny tutorial for you all through which you all can get Rid from this Virus without any Antivirus:

    1. Open Notepad
    2. Do not write anything in it.
    3. Save as (any where in PC i.e Desktop) with name "autorun.inf"



    4. Copy and paste in your “Pen Drives”
    5. Remove your drive then insert again, it will open normally

    Yeah, It will work!!
    If you guys face any problem then Please do comment below!!!

    Nice and simple trick, thank you.

    However who uses MalwareBytes' AntiMalware will have no problems, so who uses ESET NOD32 or Kaspersky 2009 for example can disable autorun easlily

    otherwise there are many free softwares for example

    if you have UAC enabled in vista and have a good security suite, then there is no need to worry, not a single autorun worm will be able to enter in your machine....

    Rahul964, You are elegible to win a ESET free license, thanks to WinVistaClub contest, I think.
    Why don't you try?
    However you use a very good antivirus: Avira is one of the best in my humble opinion

    The above will not remove a virus from a pen drive/USB. There are, however, a couple of tools developed by members of the security community that do an excellent job.

    Most important, however, is disabling AutoRun on your computer.
