Autorun Virus Remover is a tiny utility designed to help you get rid of Trojans or any other type of virus installed in your USB devices (pen drives, external disks, etc.
) in a quick and efficient way. This simple utility scans all your storage devices (both internal and external) and wipes out any suspicious file set to be executed as soon as autorun.inf is launched.
Autorun viruses can attack your entire system in seconds if not detected by your standard anti-virus tool, destroying valuable information both in your USB device and your hard drives. Until Windows 7, Windows-based systems had the tendency of executing autorun instructions automatically as soon as a CD or USB device was connected to your computer. Autorun Virus Remover checks your drives and storage devices looking for suspicious hidden files that may a fake autorun.inf file may trigger without your permission.
The program opens up a tiny and dull interface with a wide array of functions. It not only can scan your system looking for autorun viruses, but also protect your USB devices from unauthorized access – you can lock them to prevent unwanted access to your sensitive information and even disable the use of any USB device, or unlock them when locked by a virus, so that you can access the disk and perform the necessary operations. You are also offered specific tools to fix files associations, the task manager, or to recover lost data from any damaged USB device. In order to prevent future attacks, you can even disable autoplay from here, both for USB devices and local drives.
The entire scan and cleaning processes are simple to execute and produce excellent results. Though limited to detect autorun viruses, this small utility is a good and convenient complement to your standard anti-virus tool, and fully compatible with any other similar utilities that you may have installed on your system.
