    Does it work on 64 bit system?
    Does it disable autorun for a standard user account?
    How can I know if it worked? Aside from the message your computer is vaccinated? I heard it inserts a registry key, where can I find it?
    Thanks in advanced :D

    I meant the computer vaccination, not the usb :D. I'm trying to turn off autorun in my standard user account but I can't edit the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRun. If I change it in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, which settings will take place?

    Anyway if I remember well it places hidden files in the root directory of your HD.

    The entry for the computer vaccionation is the following:

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf
    @="@SYSDoesNotExist"
    As a correction to another post above, the computer vaccination does *not* add a hidden file of your system drive's root. Only the USB vaccination adds a special autorun.inf file to the USB root.
