Autorun is widely used by computer virus to infect other computer via removable drives. Windows XP is particularly vulnerable to this kind of transmission due to its behavior of executing autorun.inf file automatically (Vista and 7 do not execute autorun script without user approval).

KillAutorun is a free to use program which prevents the infection of autorun viruses in your pen drives, and local drives on your hard disk on your computer. It creates a folder named AUTORUN.INF and backup autorun.inf files before deletion.
In order to protect all drives, click the option which says Create folder named AUTORUN.INF files in each drive in root directory.
After selecting the checkbox, click the button to scan all drives now and place the fake AUTORUN.INF folders so that virus files could not be created or copied.
Key Features:
KillAutorun will help protect your Windows XP system using these steps:
  • Disabling automatic execution of autorun script upon insertion of removable device.
