Disable AutoRun to Stop 50% of Windows Malware Threats:

According to a biannual Security Intelligence Report from Microsoft, AutoRun the feature in Windows that automatically executes files when you plug in a USB or connect to a network – accounts for almost half of all malware infections.

What’s also interesting in this report is that Windows XP SP3 systems get infected about ten times as much as Windows 7 SP1 64-bit systems, and six times as much vs. 32-bit Windows 7 systems.
