    Autorun is a kind of trojan virus , which if once enters the PC, the popularly used anti virus can do little to remove it.

    You can remove it either by command prompt or you can download AutoRunVirus remover . You just need to scan your USB while inserting.
    Also it wont interfere with your Anti Virus program installed in PC.

    You can download this software from here :

    you can remove the autorun virus file from the USB drive or pendrive by scanning them and deleting the virus components that shown after scanning of the pendrive. even if any of the virus files present in the pendrive then you just format your pendrive to eliminate such problems completely..

    Re: How to remove the autorun.inf virus from USB pen drive in my WIndows system?

    First I'd like to inform you that autorun.inf file itself is not the virus or worm;rather it helps in executing the real virus or malicious code by executing them without you having to run or execute them.
    The best way to prevent this is by scanning the pendrive or any external drive before opening them,as autorun executes itself if you try to open the drive.
    The autorun was a feature which is being misused to execute viruses and malware. Also to prevent attacks by this mode you can disable the autorun feature from the windows registry settings if you'd like.

    dear friend,

    you may manually delete autorun in windows 7.

    but you can't delete in windows xp.

    you should install autorun eater or autorun remover software to remove autorun from your computer.

    or you may follow these steps to remove autorun from your computer-

    open the command prompt & after the drive from where you want to delete the autorun.

    type attrib autorun.inf-s -r -h & press enter.

    type del autorun.inf & press the enter.

    now close the command prompt & restart your windows to get the desired result.

    This virus will not be removed from your USB Pen Drive until you clean your PC from Viruses.
    So, firstly you will have to remove virus from your Computer, then from Pen Drive.
    Just install anti-virus softwares like AVG, Avast, Kaspersky, Quick Heal, etc. and remove virus.
    However, you can remove virus from your Pen Drive by formatting it from other PC.

    Autorun.inf virus is a danzerous virus.

    You can remove it by scanning it through an antivirus program.

    This antivirus program you can install and download from the Internet.

    It is always dangerous of keeping virus in the system.

    Re: How to remove the autorun.inf virus from USB pen drive in my WIndows system?

    Dear friend,

    You need not worry about the autorun.inf files remained after scanning the hard drive by antivirus. Your PC is safe. These files are just a carrier for viruses. They direct the viruses to infect your PC. Some antivirus doesnít recognize this as a virus.
    Some of these files are necessary for running some programs. They have initialization settings for the programs. If you still want to delete all these files you can use any duplicate file finder utility to delete them in bulk. You can use Advanced System Care that have such built in facility.

    Thanks!

    Hi dear friend..........to remove the auto run virus.....simply follow the below instructions

    METHOD1:


    simply open the note pad ....and don't type anything.........and save it as autorun.inf in the pendrive


    after that the autorun virus will be removed from the pendrive


    The actual logic behind this is to overwrite the autorun.inf file with an empty one ...... The empty autorun file canít execute automatically

    first connect the USB ......


    then press windows key+r and type cmd in the run and press ENTER key


    then type cd\ in the command prompt


    then type usb drive letter for expmaple: if the usb drive letter H then type H: and press ENTER key

    Re: How to remove the autorun.inf virus from USB pen drive in my WIndows system?

    1st I want to tell you that will autorun.inf file themselves isn't the malware or perhaps earthworms;relatively this assists with undertaking the real malware or perhaps harmful rule simply by undertaking these people without the need of an individual owning to run or perhaps perform them. The easiest method to protect against that is simply by scanning the pendrive or perhaps any kind of outer commute previous to launching these people,while autorun executes themselves by trying to start the drive.The autorun became a characteristic and that is being neglected to complete germs as well as malware. And to protect against problems from this setting you are able to disable the autorun characteristic from the microsoft windows computer system registry controls if you like.
