How to remove autorun.inf from USB Drive

After I make some research I found new ways to remove autorun.inf from your USB drive or flash drive.

  • Open the My Computer from your desktop or start up menu
  • Click View and go to Folder Option
  • Click on View tab
  • Change to show hidden files, folders and drive
  • Unchecked the Hide empty drives in the Computer folder
  • Unchecked the Hide the extensions for known file types
  • Unchecked the Hide protected operating system files
  • Click Apply and followed OK button on below
  • Open your Flash Drive from search bar
  • Lastly press Shift+delete to permanently delete file name autorun.inf
Purpose of autorun.inf is to run on the virus inside your flash drive and infected to the other drives.
