Flash Disinfector

Flash Disinfector is a tool that will automatically remove unwanted files on removable USB drives, flash drives and memory sticks. Typically, computer Worms can enter the computer either when user download compromised files from insecure locations. Worms also spreads on spam email messages that come as attachment or links. This worm immediately looks for presence of removable USB drives and drops certain files into it, usually autorum.inf and executable file. Autorun.inf will run the executable file when the drive is access. From this process, Worm begins to spread on network and infect other drives. Infected USB and flash drive inserted on clean computers works to contaminate other drives utilizing the same method.

Use Flash Disinfector if you cannot access your USB drives, flash drives and memory stick specifically if you are certain that the cause is autorun worm. The tool can clean-up harmful files dropped by flash drive Worms. It deletes maliciously coded autorun.inf on each root drives and folders and creates its own clean one for protection purpose. Some unsafe files targeted by Flash Disinfector includes resycled.exe, samok_Foryou.bat, samok_Foryou.vbs, destrukto.vbs, Macromedia_Setup.exe, RVHost.exe, soundmix.exe, spoclsv.exe, mmc.exe, tel.xls.exe, Bha.dll.vbs, Autorun.vbs, host.exe and copy.exe among others.

    Thanks for this – wish I’d found it BEFORE I formatted my C drive. Oh well >:-) At least my external drives re clean now as well. What causes the problem initially though? I mean, which virus does this?

    This is a great tool. this can prevent virus loading when we double click on a drive. It’s cool and simple. the folder created by f.d. ( autorun.inf) cannot normally deleted. but can deleted using some tool like eraser. I think useless for effected computers

    DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH ANYTHING ELSE. THIS IS THE ONLY THING THAT I’VE RAN ACROOS THAT WORKS AND IS EXTREMELY EASY TO USE.
    I used this program before in the past, and it worked its wonders, since then I have reloaded many an operating system across my home network and seemed to have lost the file name and location. I’ve spent the past day looking for this file and ran across a lot of “waste your time” garbage. Your a life saver.

    I have to say, I thought my machine was messed up…so thought I was risking nothing.

    This program (so far) seems to work.

    Thank you very much!!! I thought I was going to have to format my HD but alas didn’t! :0)

    I used this thinking it would only fix my USB stick, but it also did stuff to my hard drive partitions and created autorun.inf folders that can’t be deleted!!! And also it messed up the way Windows views cds and I don’t know how to undo the changes this program did to my system. Not cool.

    This program is not a virus, but its encryption software Nircmd is detected as malware. Nircmd inside of it is not malware.

    It’s amazing!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!! This really does the trick! Just a single click and all the drives are clean and clear of those boring viruses that won’t allow you to double click to open or those which will add this nasty “Autoplay” menu when right clicking on them!!!
