Hello

I have a problem ...

It was used the Flash Desinfector in two computers.

Now the explorer does not open when a memory card is inserted into the card reader.

I'd like to know what was modified by this tool for the autoplay not work ?


Thanks

Flash drive infections usually involve malware that loads an autorun.inf file into the root folder of all drives (internal, external, removable). When the removable media is inserted, autorun looks for autorun.inf and automatically executes another malicious file to run on your computer. When a flash drive becomes infected, the Trojan will infect a system when the removable media is inserted if autorun has not been disabled.

Flash_Disinfector will create a hidden folder named autorun.inf in each partition and every USB/removable drive that was plugged in when you ran it. This folder helps protect your drives from future infection.
