Thank you
Hello,

Try this 1

Check if there is any autorun.inf file in your C-drive.

Open "Notepad" --> Copy and paste the below commands

cd\
attrib -h -r -s autorun.inf
del autorun.inf

Save the file as del.bat

Note: Don't forget the extension .bat

Now double-click on the del.bat file

This will delete the autorun.inf file in your C-drive.

Restart your PC.

Good Luck

Thank you, jack4rall 4
