The removable drives and disks like CD, DVD or USB sticks, which have random access to the computer system, often sport some auto run files which especially are vulnerable to malware and land them on the system as soon as they run automatically. To shield your computer against this kind of threats, a very updated and useful software, Autorun Eater, is brought to you by Old McDonald’s Farm.
Most software of this kind removes the malware from the infected Autorun.inf, but the files remain an easy target. To prevent your computer from those Autorun.inf-born threats, Autorun Eater removes those files altogether. As soon as it is installed in the computer, it automatically starts checking from drive C to Z in search of auto run files and on finding one, quickly disables it. If it can find any malicious item, by default it informs the user and asks for confirmation to delete it. However, the user can always prefer the Auto-remove method that enables the software to delete them automatically right on detection.
Autorun Eater is not known to have problems working with other antiviruses; rather it works perfectly in unison with Microsoft Security Essentials and performs quick scans. The scan provides two optional endings: with a report of infestation of the system, or with a satisfactory removal of them. Three registry utilities, which help fixing small modifications by malicious Autorun.inf to the system, also come along with the software. It is to be remembered that this effective and convenient software is, however, not an antivirus, and therefore must work with the assistance of one.
