– Creates an autorun.inf folder in the root of your system drives
– Sometimes (as and when required) Flash Disinfector will prompt the user that a reboot is required to complete the removal

    A virus known as auto.exe has affected my computer and so I cannot veiw the hidden files. Moreover all the drives are converted to autorun i.e whenever I double click on any drive (Floopy, CD rom also) the drive open in new windows al though I make changes in folder option to open each folder in same window.
    Please let me know what antivirus to use to remove it.

    Bye the way this auto.exe is present in all disk drives and If I delete it the next moment it comes back automatically and . This file is originally comes from my flush drive.

  19. experi3nc3 Says:

    @Munir, give Flash Disinfector a run, it should restore your folder options and stuffs, then install Kaspersky trial. It should be able to remove it. Remember to update the anti virus.

    If else fails, you might want to head to bleepingcomputer.com / spywareinfo.com / geekstogo.com / techsupportforum.com for further assistance.

    Hope this helps.

  28. poch Says:

    thanks for this program 🙂

    anyway, why couldn’t i delete the autorun.inf file that your program created?

    and, i read form another site that when he used ur program, his autorun didn’t activate anymore. how come?

  29. poch Says:

    and, when i used your program, my “find” and “run” buttons from my start menu disappeared! i have to reformat my computer since i can’t seem to bring back the two commands.

  30. 100permission Says:

    what happen if i run flash disinfector on a non-infected pc ?

  31. Me Says:

    It works but i need to repeat the same process every time i plug in my harddisk. Why is that? Any solutions?

  32. eXPeri3nc3 Says:

    @Me — Try plugging in each and every HDD you have before disinfection, run FD and clear everything in one shot. Therefore it won’t reinfect your PC.

    @100permission — Why would you run FD on a non-infected PC at the first place? 😀

  33. poch Says:

    hey experience, what about the the functions your program deleted? how can i recover them?

  34. dp Says:

    whats wrong with the autorun.inf files created after using the flash disinfector ?

    can it be removed?

  35. Harsh Says:

    Many Thanks !!!

  41. richard Says:

    plz plz plz plz i need reply coz the folder AUTORUN.INF cant be remove plz answer me

  42. eXPeri3nc3 Says:

    Leave it there. It acts as a mechanism to prevent other infections to be onboard of your thumbdrive / removable drive.

    It’s created by FD, and it’s not malicious.

  43. richard Says:

  65. Mehmet Karaca Says:

    I was able to contract a worm the very first time I used my flash disk on a public computer. Windows Live OneCare detected the worm and even pretended to clean it.

    Obviously, though, there was some remnants and every time I double clicked the the flash drive, I would be faced with the famous “Choose the program…” prompt.

    Ran Flash Disinfector once and it was able to clean those remnants. My flash disk is working like it should now.

    the start button wouldnt work
    so I ran the flash disinfector and about 2 minutes later I checked and ctrl+alt+Dlt worked and so did the start button

    so I just restarted my computer..

    “Cannot copy Flash_Disinfector[1]:Access is denied.

    Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.”

    but my disk is not full nor write protected. i tried to change the save location but it is always like that.

    then i tried mozilla firefox:

    but after download it says
    “C:\Documents and Settings\PC_4\Desktop\Flash_Disinfector.exe could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder.

    Change the folder properties and try again, or try saving in a different location.”

    *eXP Edit: I do not advocate stupidity*

    Thanks for any help you can provide on this.

  142. eXPeri3nc3 Says:


    If your firefox and IE has gone corrupt, it is NOT because of Flash Disinfector, and will never ever be the cause.

    The friggin folder is there for a reason, why remove it? Sheesh I just don’t understand you guys.


    You can try to download MBAM or SuperAntiSpyware, fix whatever you can fix, and see how things go. It’s very hard to give a wild guess on what your current condition is.

  143. Fullmax Says:

    Thanks for this handy little program 😉

    This works for nar.vbs as well but you have to manualy erase it in C:\ and C:\WINDOWS after running the disinfector.

    If any of you guys have a better fix for nar.vbs it would be welcome, I’m stuck with this in my company as there is always somoene that doesn’t disinfect his usb/hard drive so it keeps on coming back 😦

    >>@luke — it’s a setting done by FD. I think you would be better of to >>disable it as it can be a security risk when virus/malware transmits over >>autorun via removable drives. =)

    I actually would *LIKE* to access the autorun feature on my DVD drive.
    How can I re-establish this?
    (Using XP if this helps.)

  153. Neil Says:

    Any chance of help here?
    so I can activate my DVD drive again?

    Who can assist me with getting a copy of this freeware,please?

    Thanks for this handy little program

  156. Valy Says:

    Hy…. This is not suported by Windows 7. When will be a version compatible with this OS? I tried even with compatibility mode, and doesn’t seems to work.

  157. ^45 Says:

    Does the software work on 64bit environment like vista 64bit

    • eXPeri3nc3 Says:

      I didn’t test the latest revisions of this software, as I’m no longer active in malware removing community. Regardless, it should be safe to assume that it will work well on 64bit.

    i will ask if flash disinfectector really work? because i encounter auto.vbs in my pc…..do you think its a virus?

  162. =D | D= Says:

    Thanks a bunch man! This really helped me get rid of the RECYCLER virus. However, it kinda sucks that it deletes autorun.inf because, I want the autorun menu to still come up. Anyways, still good. 😉

  163. Kevin Says:

    Thanks so much for posting this! I was searching on google for something to fix an autorun.inf virus that had spread to a laptop and 1 XD card + 1 SD card.

    Someone in the company I work for had obtained this lovely RECYCLER virus and spread it about a bit. So when i went to run remote scans from my USB pen it got onto there and then onto my test server…. Talk about not thinking before looking at a problem…

    Still back on topic… i ran this fix and everything seems to be fine, apart from there seems to be a driver issue with the laptop’s SD card reader, though the XD card reader works fine…

    Yet again thanks for bloging this program! I would have spent hours looking for it if you hadn’t knowing my luck… :p

    Thanks, took 5 seconds and no more issues.

  166. hush Says:

    i have run the program many times but it didn’t solve my problem with my flash drive. The first time i ran it, my phone was the only one connected to my PC. I think it did well with my phone. But I tried to ran the program again hoping to disinfect my flash drive but it didn’t work. Is the program only suppose to work the first time you run it? Is there also a way to deactivate the running flash disinfector in my PC. Thanks in advance.

  167. hush Says:

    I have ran this program in my PC with my phone connected. It worked fine. AVG doesn’t find any autorun.inf in my phone anymore and there’s already that autorun.inf folder in it. I tried to do the same thing to my falshdrive but unfortunately autorun.nf is still being detected by AVG even after running the flash disinfector many times. I can’t see anything autorun.inf folder made by flash disinfetor in it either. Is the program only suppose to work the first time? And is there a way to deactivate the running software in my computer? Thanks in advance.

    • eXPeri3nc3 Says:

      Use task manager and kill the running instance. Ctrl + Alt + Delete, and right click on the exe, end process, click ok.

      “Is the program only suppose to work the first time?” — Anytime.

      Try disabling your AVG, run Flash Disinfector. If it still fails, head over to the forums as stated above for help.

    Hi! Another program you can use on your pc to keep your pc from autorun viruses is AUTORUN EATER. Its a free software. It also works magic on the pc. It has the same icon as VLC media player.
    It removes any autorun virus trying to penetrate your pc when you connect any removable drive.

    I will recommend this great software for any one to try.
    it works magic.
