Alfa Autorun Killer 3.0.7

Block AutoRun viruses that usually infect USB removable devices, kill running processes, manage startup items, as well as check out an overview of the system services
Alfa Autorun Killer is a security tool designed to block AutoRun infections that usually infect USB removable devices.

Search and remove existing infections

Aiming to disable all the threats that attempt to spread through USB drives, regardless if we're talking about viruses, worms or spyware, Alfa Autorun Killer comes with a powerful tool to search and remove existing infections, as well as dedicated utilities to provide permanent protection.

Block autorun.inf files

Still, although you may be tricked into believing that Alfa Autorun Killer provides real-time protection, the application actually prevents from launching the autorun.inf, which means this type of viruses cannot affect your computer anymore. In other words, it is not an alternative to antivirus software.

GUI

The interface isn't well-organized at all, which means it may take some time to figure out how to use the program, especially that there's no help file included in the package.

Scan mode, built-in task manager

and other handy options

Besides the two “Scan for Autorun” and “Protection Center” sections, the application also offers a so-called “Process Manager” that does basically the same thing as the Windows “Task Manager.” It provides full control over the running processes, allowing you to halt one or multiple instances.

Last but not least, the “Services Manager” offers an overview of the system services, while the “Startup Manager” allows you to control the apps that run at Windows boot.

Bottom line

All in all, the application can be useful but multiple improvements are absolutely mandatory. A new and better organized interface is among the things to be revised, along with a detailed help manual to provide assistance to all the users.
