Disable USB Autorun to Save PC from USB Viruses
#1
Advertisement
The best way to keep USB viruses from injecting themselves to your PC or laptop is to Disable the USB Autorun feature.
  1. Click the Start button, then Run and enter "gpedit.msc" without the quotes
  2. Go to Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System
  3. Scroll down to "Turn off Autoplay" and double click on it
  4. Click on the "Enabled" radio button, then for "Turn off Autoplay on" select "All drives"

This will now prevent any virus from auto executing itself through a USB drive.
