Hello,

Try this 1

Follow all the steps given below

1) Disable the "Autoplay" feature. Click on the below link "Disable Autoplay",

and download the file --> Double-click on it and follow the instructions.

Disable Autoplay

2) Disable the "Autorun.inf". Click on the below link and follow the instructions.

First backup your registry. Click on Start --> Run --> Type regedt32 and press

Enter. "Registry Editor" will be opened.

( If you are using Windows 7, Start --> In search bar--> Type regedt32 and press

Enter.)

Now backup your registry by going to "File --> Export" --> Save the file with any

name in your desired location.

Copy the text starting from "REGEDIT4" upto @="@SYS:DoesNotExist"

REGEDIT4        
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]        
@="@SYS:DoesNotExist"  

Open a "Notepad" --> Paste it --> Save the file as fix.reg

Note: Don't forget the extension "reg"

Now double-click on the fix.reg file and then click on "Yes" to merge it,

[Note : After following the above instructions, whenever you place any autoplay

CD\DVD all you have to do is go to "My Computer" --> Open the CD\DVD drive

--> You have to double-click on the setup file.]

3) Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your Pen drive

now. This will remove the autorun.inf files from drives and and also from your

Pen drive.

[Note : AutorunExterminator need Dot Net Framework. If its not installed in

your laptop then click on the below hyperlink ".NET Framework" and download it

.NET Framework

4) After that, download the "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free" from the below

Good Luck.
