How does or did an Autorun.inf file get on my flash drive? I did not load it to the flash drive. Norton said it was a virus and deleted it. The next time I plugged in the flash drive it was back.
I deleted the autorun.inf and again the next time I plug in the flash drive it has the autorun.inf file back on it.
Does anyone know how this is possible? I thought if I deleted the file it would be gone for good.

Any ideas??

Your computer may be infected.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

This question was after removal of the virus..
The worm/virus was removed. I must assume that the reason the autorun.inf file would repopulate my flash drive was due to the virus still being in the system. More than likely it was the DLL that was removed that must of been programmed to reloaded the file and it's contents upon plug-n-play...

Thanks for reply. I've got another question and will post in the Malware form.
