      Total Block: This is a very useful feature. These days data protection is very important where anyone can connect USB to your PC or company PC and download all the information on the drive and take away. This unauthorized access is now manageable using a password. This feature can totally secure your PC from unwanted programs running on your PC from USB device.

      Autorun.inf Block: The AutoRun function in Windows can launch installers and other programs automatically when you insert a CD or flash drive, but this convenience poses a serious security risk. Every recent version of Windows has features known as AutoPlay and AutoRun. These functions are designed to launch applications automatically from an external device containing the necessary AutoRun information. This is what causes an installer window to pop up when you insert a software disc into your CD or DVD drive, for example, or makes a pop-up menu icon appear in the taskbar tray when you insert a USB flash drive.

      However convenient this might be, unfortunately, AutoRun also opens a huge door for viruses, Trojan horses, and worms. All it takes is a USB flash drive with an autorun.inf file and an executable in its root. Once inserted, a worm launched in this manner can infect every disk partition it finds, jumping from computer to computer as network users connect to an infected drive.

      USB Manager allows you to block autorun automatically so that you have control over when contents of USB drive run on your PC or not.

      Set / Reset Password Protection: When you set the password in Set / Reset Password Protection section then as soon as you attaches a removable device to the PC; it will ask for password to open Removable Device Scan window. If you want to remove Password then click on Remove Password button.
