Are you able to delete the .inf file prior to you inserting the stick in your computer? To be on the safe side, run a manual scan on its contents with your AV program. Do they (the school) know that their machine(s) is/are infected?

Otherwise to stop it auto running, press the shift key when you plug it in, or change autorun settings to disable it, then delete and reinstate autorun!

I'll suggest you yo use USB Disk Security. It's small good software that when you insert usb in the pc,it automaticly scan it.
