Autorun Eater is not an anti-virus nor does it pretend to be one. Autorun Eater is meant to work side-by-side with your AV application. As more and more malwares resort to 'autorun.inf' file tactics, there has been a need for such a tool, especially for new users. Autorun Eater protects you by warning you when a suspicious 'autorun.inf' file is detected on your storage device, thus preventing accidental execution of the malware file.
Version 2.3 adds two suspicious 'autorun.inf' removal methods--'Ask For Confirmation' and 'Auto-Remove'.
