4llerbe, u're one bad windows user; i couldn't have said it better myself; ok et me add a few points:

another way to disable autoplay is to go through the group policy editor just type win+r and in the dialog box that comes up type:

gpedit.msc the group poicy editor will come up (ps. this will not work for the home editions of windows for that you'll have to get a 3rd party tool)

in the dialog that comes up navigate to computer configuration -> administrative templates -> system scroll down to turn off autoplay ; make sure turn off autoplay is set on all drives, click apply then close. one other tip: when you want to open a removable drive, is better to use explore instead of open otherwise the autorun.inf file still gets executed. Also make sure your antivirus is up to date, one thing that surprises me is how many people that connect to the internet from their pcs have antiviruses that are not up to date. i don't have the most powerful antivirus, in fact i use a free edition of avg but i never forget to update it once i connect to the internet with windows

What!?! U formatted ur lapie cos of ejecting flash? Jeez. Wtf? Wat sort of advice is dt?

Well 1st tin is ur removables hav an autorun in them.

Now get winrar, wen installed, go to folder options n enable viewing hidden files. (Dis is not related 2 winrar anyway b4 i get crucified)

Plug in ur flash or memcard, do not allow 2 autorun. If autorun is on in ur sys, disable it. Now open d flash wit winrar, every tin u see, delete. Beta if ur files r copied out b4.

Now format d removable. Hope u also hav a gud antivrus cos d files in d flash most likely hav d virus too. Left 2 me format everytin.

Now 2 d solution, download a small free app called unlocker, install. Weneva u eject anytin n e do anyhw, d app will pop up and ask if u want 2 unlock. Unlock n voila.

NOte dt its not only virus dt causes it though in dis case it probly is as it even changed d icon. U hav d tin somewhere n u keep putting it back on d pc, flash, mem card, cd (some comp villa cd hav viruses) cafe. E.t.c

Screw winblows.
