Block virus in USB flash disk from auto-running with No Autorun

There are several utilities available for blocking auto-run related viruses spreading via USB flash drives. We had mentioned many of them in the previous articles.

No Autorun is a very tiny (37Kb), intelligent application that not only locks the autorun.inf file, but also locks the entire autorun-related virus. Most software of the same kind just deletes autorun.inf and leaves the virus file.


The application is very simple to use. Once you insert a USB disk, the program locks suspicious files in it. To delete these files, open the main window and click “Delete Autorun Files" or "Delete All". Do not try to delete them from explorer or elsewhere.

If you want to open one of these locked files, just open the main window, click the file and click "Unlock". And if you can't determine whether the suspicious files are virus or not, just leave them. No Autorun locked them so that they can’t be executed to harm you computer.

No Autorun can be downloaded free at Sourceforge.
