AutoRunGuard is an extremely flexible program that enables you to set out rules --- as simple or complex as you like --- to govern what will happen as soon as a removable drive is connected or CD inserted. This may include launching a particular program immediately, or adding relevant options to a menu for you to choose from.

For a full description of this free program, and to download it, visit the
AutoRunGuard Home Page.

Nothing gets posted I've read and approved it, so if you don't want me to post it publicly, just say something like "Don't post this" or "Personal". -I'll still appreciate the feedback.

Great program! I have an urgent question. We are experiencing a spate of USB-based worm attacks here in our office in Indonesia. I need instructions to set up AutoRunGuard so that:
1. It starts automatically when the computer is turned on (do I just include AutoRunGuard.cmd in the startup programs list??)

2. It runs in the background and cues the AutoRunGuard program when a USB drive is inserted. It seems like this should already be the case, so perhaps I need to modify WatchForDrives.cmd

I'm sorry. I'm a newbie at this, so detailed instructions are greatly appreciated. Right now, the program will run beautifully IF I double click AutoRunGuard.cmd, but I know that it is easy to forget and open the flash drive incorrectly.

Thanks much for your help!

Hi Dan,
I recently came to know about your AutoRunGuard program.I have Panda USB Vaccine already installed on my computer.I have gone through your explanation on your web page.But as I am not a computer expert so I cannot understand all the terms of computer.
To clear my doubts would you please answer some of my questions.

I think Panda USB Vaccine does the same work as yours AutoRunGuard program (MD5 & USBVirus scan part excluded).
If your answer is YES they are different then please tell me:

1). How is AutoRunGuard (MD5 & USBVirus scan part excluded) different from Panda USB Vaccine ?

2).Having autorun disabled on my system if I open my USB stick from address bar and neither by double-clicking on the drive icon under 'My Computer' (i.e. in an Explorer window), nor by selecting the highlighted option from the drive's shortcut menu (accessed with a right-click) does autorun worms still infect my pc(I think it will not as I have done this)

In our office, many of us have been using Autorun Guard for some years, and are very happy with it. Til now, we've been using Avira to scan pen drives, but now we wish to switch to Emsisoft Antimalware. Can you please give us a command line for Emsisoft that we can insert in place of the Avira command line.

I found the command line for AutoRunGuard, if you're using Emsisoft Antimalware. Here it is: "C:\ ProgramFiles%\Emsisoft Anti-Malware\a2cmd.exe" /s /a /f="%d%""%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Emsisoft Anti-Malware\a2cmd.exe" /s /a /f="%d%"
