Hello,

I suggest you stop it. You may have a usb virus other then autorun.

Normally this type if issue is caused by a USB virus. It will spread to all of your USB memory devices and harddisk.

Here is a tool to remove the virus and vaccinate your USB against further viruses.


Download UsbFix (créé par El Desaparecido) on your desktop.

http://services.service-webmaster.fr/cpt-clics/clics-30453-6505.html


If your antivirus gives an alert, ignore it and temporarily deactivate the antivirus.
Plug in your usb devices (Flash drive, pen drive. External HD etc...) don't open them.
Double click sur UsbFix.exe.

Click on deletion
.
Let the tool work.

At the end of the scan a report will show which you can copy and paste here..

The report is save at the root ( C:\UsbFix.txt ).

You can also vaccinate against any virus.

Good luck
