The fight against the Autorun virus continues, this time with a dedicated solution supposed to add a new security layer to your computer.
Called Autorun Virus Remover, this utility scans both the computer and the removable drives and not only that it removes the existing infections, but it can also protect removable as well as local disks.
First-time users will have to follow a simple wizard that guides them through their first computer scanning process with this application, thus helping them make sure the machine and the removable drives that are plugged in are not infected.
The interface of the software is rather plain and allows you to either initiate a scan, analyze the running processes, play a little bit with the settings or fix the system in case you're already infected and you wish to repair the 'Task manager', the registry editor, disabled 'Folder Options' or exe file associations.
Autorun Virus Remover comes with a dedicated tool to immunize USB drives and local disks, so you just have to pick the drive you want to secure and click 'Apply'.
On the other hand, there's also a dedicated tool for unlocking USB devices, disabling the usage of removable units or writing data to the USB storage devices.
Everything went pretty smoothly during our test and we experienced absolutely no issues. Windows 7 users should keep in mind that they have to right-click the executable file or the shortcut and use the 'Run as Administrator' option in order to have the tool function properly.
Overall, Autorun Virus Remover is one of the most advanced Autorun fighters we've seen until now and in case you're still struggling to deal with this type of infection, this tool should get the job done.
