Can I prevent my USB "thumb" drive from being "run" when inserted in ANOTHER'S computer
Posted on 2008-10-30
I would like to see something that is a general "fix" but needs to be at least for XP and Vista. Both will autorun the USB drive when it is inserted after loading any drivers, etc. I want the drivers to still load but want to prevent either the OS or some program from scanning the drive. It would even be nice to stop the popup Windows uses to ask what I want to do with the drive but that isn't as annoying. There are many programs though that are scanning to find docs, images, etc they can archive, use, etc. I mainly want to prevent that. It is my drive and they don't need to snoop. :)
Let me know if there is a question about this or the set up. Thanks!
