Hmph...you are correct. Now that I recall, I tried to use this program a while back, but was dismayed to find out that is doesn't work in Windows 7 no matter what Compatibility settings you apply. I had to boot my netbook into XP to use it.
I suppose you could just borrow a computer running Vista or XP and run Flash Disinfector with your flash drive plugged into that computer. Once the autorun folder is created, you don't need Flash Disinfector anymore. A flash drive that was "disinfected" on another computer will work with any other computer you stick it in...Autorun will simply not run due to the dummy autorun file created by Flash Disinfector on the flash drive.
I like the security this program brings, but I use the Autorun feature so much, I can't bear to have Autorun disabled on all my flash drives.

No, and yes.
So, based on this last post, it looks like FlashDisinfector will not only disable Autorun within Windows, but also on the USB/Flash device?
