Panda USB Vaccine allows users to "vaccinate" their PC in order to completely disable AutoRun so that no program from USB/CD/DVD media (regardless of whether they are vaccinated or not) starts automatically.

Panda USB Vaccine can also be used for individual USB drives to disable the AUTORUN.INF file to prevent the automatic spread of malicious infections. When applying the application to a USB drive, the vaccine permanently blocks the AUTORUN.INF file, preventing it from being read, created, deleted or modified

Once launched, the application effectively blocks Windows from automatically executing any malicious files that can be stored on a specific USB drive. Use of the drive remains normal, files (and even malicious ones) can be copied to/from it, but their automatic opening will be prohibited.

Panda USB Vaccine effectively prevents the automatic execution of potentially harmful files from USB drives.

Please note that vaccination of the USB drive is an irreversible operation and under some unlikely conditions the application may stop working. In any case, if there are no AUTORUN.INF files on your USB drive, the vaccination is absolutely safe.

With Panda USB Vaccine, you will be safe from any malicious attacks coming from AUTORUN.INF files.

The Panda USB Vaccine provides a solution to protect your computer and USB storage devices from infections that can spread through USBs. It does this by disabling autorun functionality preventing the spread of malware. The program is easy to use with an interface that doesn't require installation. Just click a button to activate the protection. It's important to note that the Panda USB Vaccine is meant to prevent infections than cure existing ones so it focuses on reinforcing cybersecurity than cleaning compromised systems. One notable feature is its ability to extend protection, to devices independently while operating quietly in the background without slowing down your system. It's suitable, for users of all skill levels. However keep in mind that once you vaccinate your system autorun functionality will be disabled until you manually restore it and any existing infections cannot be removed by this program.

My feedback on this product is not going to be a good one. My reason being is that It would cause a lot of hardship, making some programs you normally run on your computer not be able to function properly, and locking you out. We already have problems with our own email address, being locked out because it does not recognize you.

Panda USB Vaccine is a free security utility designed to protect your USB and external devices from getting infected with autorun-based malware. It works by disabling the autorun feature on your USB devices, making it harder for malicious programs to execute on your system. The software also creates a special "vaccine" on your USB drive, so that if it ever gets infected, it can be quickly disinfected.
