    Why need disable Autorun?
    AutoRun and the companion feature AutoPlay are components of the Microsoft Windows operating system that dictate what actions the system takes when a drive is mounted. One file named "Autorun.inf" is the primary instruction file associated with the Autorun function.

    There are many situations where AutoRun may need to be temporarily or persistently disabled. For example:
    • AutoRun might interfere with the operation of a running application and need to be disabled for the duration.
    • Some malware maybe achieve this by copying a malicious executable in the drive and modifying the Autorun.inf file so that Windows opens the malicious file silently as soon as the drive is mounted.
