I hope removing AUTORUN.INF files (and also folders) created by security software will help me also to display volume labels...
Thank you
P.S can anyone give me detailed instructions about manual way Immunizing the disk drives?

Hi Gio, welcome to the Forums...

The manual way of 'immunizing' is:

1. Open a command prompt window(type "cmd" on your start menu and press Enter)
2. From the command prompt, Navigate to your hard Disks' Root(eg. C:, D:, E:,etc)
3. Type "md -autorun.inf" and press Enter
4. Type "attrib +r +s +h autorun.inf" to give system attributes to the newly created folder.

Do this for all the drives you want to immunize.

But I'm afraid this option wont make the volume label display as I thought it did... it will work if you use it on XP, Vista or an OS other than Windows 7.

As I mentioned before in one of my previous posts, you don't really need this on Windows 7, the autorun.inf virus is ineffective on this OS.

Thank you for reply,:)
I removed Autorun.inf folders from partitions and labels now are displayed correctly, but my Flash drive's labels still are not displayed, because I immunized them with Panda USB Vaccine, and I can not cancel this- I am using Flash drives on many computers.

I'm not familiarized with with Panda USB Vaccine, but if the program did immunize your USB drives and you'd like to undo it, you'll need to remove the system attributes to the bogus ''autorun.inf'' that the program may have placed on the root of your device...

First you have to find out if that file really is hidden in the device:

1. Open a command prompt window and navigate to your devices root
2. Type dir/ah and press Enter... to see all the hidden system files, now see if the "autorun.inf" file is shown.
3. If the file is present then type "attrib -r -s -h autorun.inf" to remove the system attributes

Now you should be able to delete the file normally, but to ensure everything works out fine you have to uninstall that Panda program and restart your PC before doing any of the above steps.

oidicle,
youdon't understand me, :)
I can cancel immunity from Panda software, at least I can Format Flash drive, but I am not doing this because I am afraid Flash infection (I am using my flash cards on many other computers and some of them might be infected, my PC is secure, but not all PC's where I plug Flash drives, ) so, I have to keep them vaccinated :)
Due to this, my Windows7 can not show me Flash drive labels

Well like I've already told you that there's no other way of doing it without the label disappearing. Unfortunately if you want to use your flash on some computers you suspect might have a virus, then you'll just have to leave the file as it is....
