remove pendrive virus without any antivirusNow showcase your CD, DVD and pen drives that you are the owner by setting an icon for it. (like I do)
First of all you have to choose an icon by downloading it from free online open sources like www.crystalxp.net, vistaIcons.com, walrick.deviantART.com, creativecommons.org, and you can search more icons from Google, yahoo, Bing or facility or any or your favorite search engine.
The icon files would be in the extension of .ico or .dll (dynamic link library).



Do you want to create your own icon? Then make an image file (jpeg or png) of your logo, your name, any character, cartoon, your photo or anything. Open this image file in any image editor like Irfan View (I recommend because I found it the best, free, open source, most popular but you can choose any other if you wish) www.irfanview.net. Now, save the file with an extension of .ico and name it “myicon.ico”.
Now, copy and paste this icon file into your pen drive(usb disk), DVD or any other removable devices.


The most important step is to create a configuration file.
Open notepad and type the following code:

[autorun]
Icon=myicon.ico


Now, save the file and name it autorun.inf with the extension .inf.
Then copy the file “autorun.inf” and paste the file in your removable devices (CD, DVD, or Pen drives). Now, remove your pen drive or burn your DVD in case of DVD with the above two files we’ve created.



The next time you plug-in your pen drive or insert the CD or DVD, what do you see. Now impress your boss, friends and them who use you CD or DVD. If you fail to create the autorun.inf or it’s not working you can download the autorun.inf file form here.
