Instructions (For complete instructions and virus list read the readme file after unzipping Clean.Zip)

* The tool is applicable for Win2000/XP
* You should run the tool only after deleting infected files with Antivirus

NoAuto.Zip

A registry patch to disable the autorun functionality in Windows.

Autorun is a mechanism that starts a program when a medium is accessed or connected to the computer (for example - when a CD is inserted or a drive icon is being clicked on in Windows Explorer). It is common that viruses use this functionality to spread themselves by infecting USB and other drives.

Instructions

  • The tool is applicable for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/2003/2008
  • Unzip NoAuto.zip and run NoAuto.reg by right clicking on it and selecting "Merge".
  • Reboot the computer after applying the patch.

You can download the tool from:  http://ca.huji.ac.il/bf/fixtools/NoAuto.zip
More information on Autorun: US-CERT TA09-020A

In case you wish to restore the autorun functionality, not recommended, download NoAutoCancel.zip and run it in the same manner as NoAuto. Be aware that this will make your computer more vulnerable to virus infection.
