    This software only protects the computer that it is installed on. If you insert a usb drive into an infected machine that has an autorun virus, it can infect your usb drive - but when you plug the drive back into your own pc, the autorun is disabled, so your own pc won't be infected. It does this via the WM_DEVICECHANGE message.

    I just ran into a virus on my USB Flash Drive...

    Why are the features in this tool not options included in NOD32 ??
    Seems like a very good idea to include in NOD32 !?
