    This is my champion! I like it and use it because:
    1) It's portable (makes no changes to registry nor installs anywhere)
    2) It covers a broad spectrum of autorun files, not only nasty ones.
    3) Consumes little to almost no resources
    4) It neutralizes the suspicious autorun files so you can work without worries on your USB files but you can also keep them (if you want them)

    I am currently using Panda Cloud's built-in USB protection on my machine but No Autorun is deployed on all the other machines I manage

    This is the one I'm testing on my laptop.

    By the way, I've not yet enable "USB Write protect". I suppose that this function enabled makes the USB drive unwritable, so that no new files could be created. Have you already use this function ? In which case ?

    USB Disk Security looks very nice USB security program.

    Is there somebody who have already tested ?

    Yes, that's what it does. It will only allow you to work on files already-created in your flash drive. I've not used it yet, luckily!
    This feature is designed to be used on already-infected computers which you don't want to infest any flash drives that are plugged into them. So it's useful on kiosk computers, shared workstations, etc...
    BTW, No Autorun supports NTFS/Fat32
