Hi, I have 2 drives being C and E, and since I have downloaded the new update on my free AVIRA I I receive a panel that appears when I enter my E drive reading> guard autorun blocked access to the file `E:\AUTORUN,INF` was blocked for your safety
I have run the virus program regarding this statement, but all seems ok? could you please explain to me what this is regarding and how do I stop this info.
thank you

Something has set the E drive to auto run on start

This is often a way to spread viruses on USB sticks by getting them to Autorun when pluggedin before your Antivirus can scan them.

I suggest you Look at E drive and delete the Autorun.inf file
