Developer's Description

Bring back autorun on USB sticks in Windows 7 and 8.
Autorun procedure under Windows 7 was seriously restricted for security reasons. While the autorun for CD and DVD disks functions as before, USB sticks cannot benefit from this convenient feature anymore. Indeed, many viruses and malware applications used USB autorun to spread and infest computers. Unfortunately, disabling autorun of USB drives has affected legitimate developers as well.

Autorun USB Helper is a workaround for this problem. This tiny utility silently sits in the background of the computer and constantly overseers all USB storage devices being connected. Once it finds that a USB stick is found, the tool scans the drive for autorun.inf file and if it there, the file specified in it is executed. This brings back the autorun functionality of USB sticks glibly removed in Win7.
