    Hello, autostart not work!, to fix this I create batch file ‘active_resident_USB_Vaccine.bat’:
    @echo off
    echo start /D”%ProgramFiles%\Panda USB Vaccine\” USBVaccine.exe /resident /autovaccinate /experimentalntfs > “%userprofile%\Menu Start\programy\autostart”\USBVaccine.bat

    There are 2 lines.
    Best Regards

    @Marcin, does this happen only in 1 computer or are you able to replicate it in other computers?

    @melina, no further languages yet. Which language would you like to see?

    If you have installed previous versions of this tool, what should you do? Should you uninstall those versions and then install this one? (I just remember that those ones were beta versions..)

    @Pedro Bustamante

    Yes, anybody may create software/script to distribute this software on his network.

    1) Please use SystemInternals tools like psexec and script.


    ) ScriptIT is tool who automatically (re)installation Panda USB Vaccine

    ) start.bat with launch ScriptIT and active_resident_USB_Vaccine.bat

    ) WinRar executive archive with start.bat file and others.

    I have not got this in one package then I write method How to do it :).

    Best Regards

    @Marcin, actually USBVaccine incorporates some command-line arguments that can be used for distribution and management within a network’s endpoints. They are the following:

    USBVaccine [ +system|-system ] [ /resident [/hidetray] [/autovaccinate] ] [/experimentalntfs] [/agreelicense] [drive units]

    Open Panda USB Vaccine and hit F1 to get the full description of each one of these arguments.

    Pedro, if you can send me a language file (in spanish or english), I can translate all lines to Portugues (for free of course).

    What about the portable version?
    I really prefer the standalone one.
    Anyway the reasonable thing would be to offer two download links: standalone version and installer.

    I think the AUTORUN.INF of a pen drive vaccinated is ever changed when using the pen drive in Linux. As a precaution, I delete the file and apply the Panda USB Vaccine again when I return to Windows. Is this correct procedure?

    @Pedro Bustamante
    I’m trying to run the USBVaccine.exe file from a network share using a script so I don’t have to install the software on each computer and it can be rolled out faster. However I’m having a issue doing it. If I create the batch file with the command line and have a GPO run it as a start script assigned to the machine, it just seats there during start saying “Running start script…” and eventually times out. When I times out it appears to kill the program because when I then login to the computer it is not running. It appears that the start script is waiting for the USBVaccine.exe program to close before it continues and doesn’t like it to stay running. I have also tried doing it as a login script assigned to the user in the GP and also a script assigned to the user in the Windows account section (this one is not via a GP but as the logon script in the profile tab of the user account). However the program will run this way but it will not auto vaccinate a USB flash drive when it is connected. It doesn’t even recognize that one has been connected to the computer. The only way I get it to recognize that a USB flash drive is connected to the computer is that the user account has to be a member of the domain administrators group. All of our user accounts are a member of the domain users group with no admin rights. Is it a way to get it to work with non admin rights?
