You can create an unchangeable autorun.inf in your USB to prevent virust attacks to your USB using autorun.inf. Here is the guide:

1.) Go to Start > Run > cmd > Hit Enter
2.) Type your USB Flash Drive Path(like
D: , E: , F: , G: and etc..) and then Hit Enter
3.) Type md autorun.inf and then Hit Enter
4.) Type cd autorun.inf and then Hit Enter
5.) Type md con\

__________________________________________________ _______________

Here is an example in CMD:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\Admin>F:

F:\>md autorun.inf

F:\>cd autorun.inf
F:\autorun.inf>md con\

__________________________________________________ _______________

Then you can hide the autorun.inf folder(apply only for this folder) inside your USB so that it will be invisible.

This will prevent to overwrite and delete autorun.inf in your folder. The con folder created inside autorun.inf folder is 100% harmless. It will not be deleted because this is a MS-DOS reserve word. Only flash drive formatting can delete the autorun.inf folder inside in your flash drive. For more info about reserved words for Microsoft Windows, just search it in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


To follow the path:
look to the master,
follow the master,
walk with the master,
see through the master,
become the master.
