Autorun USB Helper sits in the background and monitors the system for all new USB sticks connected to it. Once it detects a new USB drive it scans it for any autorun program on it and executes it thus emulating autorun feature that was disabled on Windows 7 for USB devices for security purposes. At the same time, the safety of the operation and authenticity of the executed file is guaranteed by strong checksum testing and the built-in white list.
(Bring back autorun on USB sticks that was disabled under Windows 7 or 8
Autorun procedure under Windows 7 was seriously restricted for security reasons. While the autorun for CD and DVD disks functions as before, USB sticks cannot benefit from this convenient feature anymore. Indeed, many viruses and malware applications used USB autorun to spread and infest computers. Unfortunately, disabling autorun of USB drives has affected legitimate developers as well.
Autorun USB Helper is a workaround for this problem. This tiny utility silently sits in the background of the computer and constantly overseers all USB storage devices being connected. Once it finds that a USB stick is found, the tool scans the drive for autorun.inf file and if it there, the file specified in it is executed. This brings back the autorun functionality of USB sticks glibly removed in Win7.
