USB Autorun Viruses/Worms ~ how to avoid it?

USB Autorun Remover/Preventer

Whenever opening a USB Disk, never use the autoplay menu(just hold press esc key) and always use the Explorer's Tree Menu(left pane) whenever accessing the USB Drive.

For your safety, you can always download this file to auto protect your computer:

Manually Disable Autorun
or simply hold [Shift] key when inserting / loading the storage card.

USB or Any Storage Media - Vaccine

Disabling autorun will decrease the chance of having infected ofthe known wide-spread virus/worms/trojan/backdoors. follow the steps below:

Disable AutoRun in Microsoft Windows

To effectively disable AutoRun in Microsoft Windows, import the following registry value:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]

To import this value, perform the following steps:

  1. Copy the text
  2. Paste the text into Windows Notepad
  3. Save the file as "autorun.reg"
    Note: In certain circumstances, Notepad may automatically add a .txt extension to saved files. To ensure that the file is saved with the proper extension, select All Files in the "Save as type:" section of the "Save As" dialog.
  4. Navigate to the file location
  5. Double-click the file to import it into the Windows registry

Microsoft Windows can also cache the AutoRun information from mounted devices in the MountPoints2 registry key. We recommend restarting Windows after making the registry change so that any cached mount points are reinitialized in a way that ignores the Autorun.inf file. Alternatively, the following registry key may be deleted:


Once these changes have been made, all of the AutoRun code execution scenarios described above will be mitigated because Windows will no longer parse Autorun.inf files to determine which actions to take. Further details are available in the CERT/CC Vulnerability Analysis blog. Thanks to Nick Brown and Emin Atac for providing the workaround and to Aryeh Goretsky for pointing out a possible issue with Notepad appending a .txt file extension.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
