Hello,

I think you are having problem with auto run. Some time its work as a virus and some time it’s a good program to use. It depends on when and how it works, in your case its working as a virus. But you can solve this problem by formatting your Hard disk. You are thinking why I don’t suggest you to use antivirus, because no antivirus can solve this problem. But if you want to buy a new one my suggestion would be Samsung G2 it’s a good looking and user friendly Hard disk with good Data speed along with 320 GB Data storage and I think it would be within your budget. But you can buy western digital 250 GB. Though it is new to market but it gives a performance.

Hello Smith,

I will suggest that you disable the autoplay option for the flash drives on your computer so that before any action is performed on a USB drive that is plugged on your computer, you first have to perform a scan on it. How your external driver is a bit risky and if it is infected by a virus it could affect the computer that you are using.

Use the following procedure to disable autoplay:

  • On your computer click on start and then run, and then press enter.
  • In run, type gpedit.msc.
  • In a window that will come up, select administrative templates in the system tree view.
  • You should see 'turn off autoplay' in the right side pane of the window.
  • Double click on it , and turn off autoplay to all drives

So every time you connect the external hard drive it won't start carrying out processes on its own.

Okay, scanning for possible virus before turning off the auto play definitely helped.
