  • Chiranjib I don’t really understand the connection between opening a folder in a new window and the flash disinfector???

  • Flash disinfector removes the autorun.inf from the drives as well as the USB drives. In most cases this problem occurs due to virus. Flash disinfector is the best solution I have used. You can try it.

  • But my point is that even though the flash disinfector will remove the autorun.inf file from the USB drive, how will it restore the problem of folders opening in a new window?

    By the way we have our own smart virus remover which does the same thing as flash disinfector plus it removes the virus also.
