How to Remove Autorun.inf Virus





Autorun.inf is a file instruction associated with the Autorun function. It is a simple text-based configuration file that tells the operating system which executable file to start, which icon to use and what are menu commands available commonly used for CD to automatically play its contents

Its autorun capability makes it a favorite target for malware, spyware. Once worm or trojan virus is associated with the autorun.inf file the virus will spread like a wild fire.

Once the Autorun.inf is infected it is not easy to delete it. If you do the normal delete command, the autorun.inf keep coming back after you remove it.

4. Type ATTRIB -H -R -S AUTORUN.INF then press “Enter”
