hi there,

the autorun you said is it autorun.inf?

if yes then its a virus install an antivirus

then flash your phone memory card and your pendrive

also or by deleting the file you mentioned.

Hi. i ran the flash_disinfector and the virus warning from avast does not appear anymore. however both my pen drive and my phone now have a folder named autorun.inf this folder is not getting deleted. when i try to do so the message comes that the folder has been created by the disinfector. i checked its properties and it has zero disk space and zero kb... the file however is there and is read only.
what do i do........... do i need to worry about it. is there chance of the virus spreading if i use my pen drive on another pc........ please advice
