Anti Autorun-7 is a security software tool that protects removable devices against the 'autorun' virus which can easily infect computers.
It works with USB flash drives, MP3 player and smartphones. The app can be easily installed and configured by individuals of any level of experience.
The interface of the program is based on a standard window where you can view a list of all storage devices which are currently connected to the computer.
The queue displays the label, occupied and free space, along with the status of each drive. So, all you have to do is choose an entry and activate its protection by clicking a button, thus changing its status. Unfortunately, you cannot select multiple entries to secure them at the same time.
Anti Autorun-7 creates a folder within the drive called 'autorun.inf' which contains a file named 'nul'; it doesn't occupy any space. Thanks to this special folder, the removable device is protected against the 'autorun' virus. It is also recommended to regularly delete unknown items from your drives. However, Anti Autorun-7 does not work if the respective device is already infected with the virus, since it merely represents a prevention measure.
The app does not put a strain on the computer's resources, as it uses a very low amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and rapidly changes the status of drives. We have not come across any issues during our testing; Anti Autorun-7 did not freeze, crash or display error dialogs. Unfortunately, the utility has never been updated.
