InfBlocker is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help users protect their computer against viruses that are found on USB devices.
The program offers antivirus protection by blocking the autorun.inf files which may carry different types of threats. When the AutoRun function is disabled viruses cannot spread into your computer, so this way you can make sure your system is not compromised.
InfBlocker sits quietly in the system tray until called upon when it reveals several configuration settings to tinker with.
The program features a Real Time Protection mode which ensures the connected drives are constantly scanned for viruses. In case it detects an infection, you can make the utility delete or freeze the infected files.
What’s more, InfBlocker gives you the possibility to make the program display notifications in case of events, as well as scan and immunize the selected drive.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to run the tool at Windows startup, unhide files and folders, write the activity to a log file, as well as disable the use of the USB drive, so data cannot be read or written.
During our testing we have noticed that InfBlocker carries out a task quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.
All in all, InfBlocker offers a simple yet efficient software solution for helping you block viruses from infiltrating into your computer. If you want to skip the installation steps, you can download the portable version of the program, which can be found here.
