Whenever any external drives are connected to your system, the autorun feature starts automatically and all programs in the drive may also start. The autorun malware may also be written in the drives so that it starts as soon as the drive is connected and spreads malware to your system. This feature helps you safeguard your USB devices from autorun malware.
To configure USB Drive Protection, follow these steps:
- Open Quick Heal Internet Security Essentials.
- On the left pane, click Protection and then click USB Drive Protection.
The Tools details screen appears.
- In the Select a removable drive list, all the removable drives plugged into your system are listed. Select the drive and click the Secure Removable Drive button.
The drive will be secured against autorun malwares when used in other systems.
Tip: Quick Heal recommends that you always keep the autorun feature of your USB drive turned off.
