    Without using Defensewall or Sandboxie?
    Is there any other simple utility that can do this, make any pendrive or external HDD that connects with a usb cable, untrusted, as in cant auto-execute viruses?

    I am trying to make defensewall ONLY keep a watch for pendrives, and not utorrent, flashget or even firefox.
    but its hard....!
    i am not sure if i just add the folder in the defensewall exclude list, if the registry entries belonging to the utorrent applications are outside the folder, and so defensewall will still block utorrent.

    how to properly add a program that is untrusted by default like flashget and make it trusted?

    Follow the instructions here to disable autorun - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967715. I assume you're running XP. If you're not, then there is no problem, as AutoRun displays a menu and does not automatically run anything in Vista and 7.

    No need for third-party applications.

    Is there any antiexecutable program that can be specifically tuned to not allow pendrives or external hdd's that plug using a usb cable to run exe's, even if the user double-clicks on them?

    SRP/applocker. Also Antiexecutable 3. Ok? I think many other. But if you got SRP/applocker use this as it free ok!

    Panda offers a freeware utility, "Panda USB Vaccine" that disables autoruns on removable media. It also easily re-enables it if you wish.

    AppGuard is another possibility to consider.

    Not exactly what you want, but have a look on this utility.

    You will be amazed if you try some auto run malware yourself with this utility.
