    Hi Joseph,

    An autorun.inf file is a text file that can be used by the AutoRun and AutoPlay components of Microsoft Windows operating systems. Unfortunately, malware authors use this technique to run the malware automatically without user interaction. If you are finding Autorun.inf file in the various locations of your computer, please do the scan with K7 to make sure your systems are protected.
