    help me…I accidentally deleted or removed the billy.exe file and I don’t know how to recover it….please tell me what to do….thanks!!

    Old McDonald: Did you manually deleted the file or did your antivirus remove it? If you can’t recover it using your antivirus, try reinstalling Autorun Eater. Hope this helps. šŸ™‚

    hi there.
    my external hard disc has recently been infected by Autorun.inf and networm-kido. so, installed autorun eater to help me solve this problem. however, after few hours of scanning, nothing happened. how can i know if the scanning is running? Is it smtg wrong with my installation?
    thank you so much for answering.

    Old McDonald: Hi, there’s actually nothing wrong with your installation. Autorun Eater doesn’t actually scan your whole computer but it monitors all your drives and warns you only if a suspicious autorun.inf file is found. So if there’s no warning, there’s probably no autorun.inf file in any of your drives. Also, not all variants of the Conficker(Kido) worm use the autorun.inf method to spread. What are the symptoms you’re experiencing that you’re sure the problem is due to an autorun.inf file?

    If you want to fully disinfect your computer, it is recommended you download a free Conficker removal tool or use an updated antivirus. If this doesn’t solve your problem, please feel free to reply. Thank you! šŸ™‚

    Hi, I am having a problem in which I have searched google and have found no problem concerning autorun eater.

    I right click on the safety cone icon (autorun eater)

    And I click on “Scan Drive (A:), but this pops up

    ! Could not scan drive (a:)

    It does not exist, does not contain any media or the media
    is corrupted, eg. Floppy.

    That happens also with the drive (b:) option

    I am running vista 64. Was I suppose to download a separate installation?
    I installed the newest download of Autorun Eater 2.3.

    I appreciate your time and effort in this project. Thank you.

    Old McDonald: Those messages appear because there’s probably no drive A: or B: on your computer. Autorun Eater monitors all other drives(C-Z) in real time so there’s no need to manually choose a drive to scan. So I guess you have the right installation file.

    I hope that answers your question, if not, please feel free to reply. Thank you! šŸ™‚
