AutoRunExterminator is a small-sized tool that automatically removes the autorun (also known as autoplay) virus from infected drives that are not marked as read-only, such as USB flash disks. It provides real-time protection for your system and does not require user assistance.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can run AutoRunExterminator from any location on the hard disk, as well as access it on any workstation without prior installers.
What's more, it does not add Windows Registry keys, or leave file traces behind after removing it from the computer.
Once initialized, the app creates an icon in the system tray area that you can double-click to bring up a panel for making minor adjustments and viewing a log file with found and deleted autorun.inf files.
It is possible to schedule AutoRunExterminator to run at Windows startup, as well as to show alerts on the bottom right corner of the screen. There are no other notable options provided by the tool.
We have noticed a minimal CPU and RAM consumption during the program's runtime. It is prompt in detecting the autorun.inf virus and successfully performs a deletion job. No errors were shown in our tests, and AutoRunExterminator did not freeze or crash.
