The Autorun feature which was created to assist users with installations of software packages from CD-ROM media is now being used by unethical hackers as a medium to spread different malicious programs such as Trojan horses and Conficker worm.
This is an antivirus software that is specifically designed to handle threats from autorun-related malware and offer all-round protection for your USB removable drives. To prevent your PC from being infected, the application disables the Autorun program (autorun.inf) on the USB drive which naturally comes installed on all USB drives.
Upon deployment, the application automatically scans your PC for newly inserted USB drives and immediately immunize them against Trojan programs and Conficker worms. It shows a pop-up message once it is done immunizing the drives. In the case where you mistakenly connect an unimmunized USB removable drive to your PC, the application automatically blocks the system from auto-executing the malicious program on the drive.
The application is lightweight and can be stored on USB drives, simply download the executable file on either your system storage or USB storage and run it from there. It does not prior installation, therefore, it can be run on any PC.
