Protect your PC from being infected by worms from USB devices

My PC is full of PSP games and my neighbors usually copy from me. They will give me their memory sticks, external drives, flash disks to copy some games. It's a bit risky though since plugging different USB devices on your PC is a sure way to spread those worms.


Net Studio's USB Firewall is a small app that can prevent your PC to be attacked by virus coming from autorun files in USB devices. While this app is running, whenever you plug in a USB drive which tries to run a worm file, it will prompt you first before the autorun is executed. You can view the autorun file from the USB device and delete it when all it does is execute the worm.

The interface could use some better design but it does its job well and it's FREE.
