USB Defender Description
Nowadays you need more and more to transfer information and you may find yourself using a USB drive on a daily basis. It is the easiest way to carry data with you, but not always the safest way. Figures show an alarming number of PCs already infected and ready to spread the threats even more.
To avoid such problems, there is a lightweight, nifty tool called USB Defender. It is a portable application, which means no installation is required and you can take it to any computer with no problems.
The software has a very friendly interface, meaning that it has no hidden functions or menu. You cannot miss the two buttons available: Protect and Unprotect; however, these are not the only options present in the application.
When choosing to protect your removable drive USB Defender will actually prevent autorun.inf from carrying out its purpose. This means that the application will block autorun.inf file from running and no file is automatically executed the moment you hook the drive to a computer.
The most secure way to protect your USB with this tool is to use the Pro method, because it will increase your protection level. You can use the Pro method, only if your account has administrator rights.
The application works on FAT, NTFS and FAT32 formatted drives. Although its protection is limited to preventing malware from spreading through autorun method, USB Defender makes for a good way to increase protection for your removable drives.
