Autorun based viruses and malwares are one of the most common issues faced by USB pen drives when using on public computers. So it was always good that you do a scan before you insert USB to your PC. The USB immunizer is BitDefender’s response to this growing issue. The freeware app is completely portable and does not require any installation. This small utility is divided in two sections- one is Immunize USB and second one is immunize computer.
The Immunize option allows you to immunize your USB storage device or SD card against infections with autorun-based malware. Even if your storage device has been plugged into an infected computer, the piece of malware will be unable to create its autorun.inf file, thus annihilating any chance of auto-launching itself.
The second option is to Immunize Computer slider allows you to toggle the autorun feature On or Off for any removable media (except for CD/DVD-ROM devices). If you accidentally plug in an infected USB drive that has not been immunized, the computer will not auto-execute the piece of malware located on the USB storage device.
The app completely removes any threat from autorun based malwares and infections.
