Auto scan usb drives with Avg antivirus


How To Use AVG Free To Remove Viruses From YourA removable device is any device that can temporarily connect to a computer (USB key, external hard drive, memory card).
In the advanced settings of AVG AntiVirus we have the ability to activate the automatic scanning of USB drives and removable devices .
If we activate this option (off by default) will automatically start a scan to check for potential threats whenever removable media is connected to the computer. Enabling this option is always recommended.

The removable devices, in particular USB sticks, are in fact a major source of infection for a computer. Thanks to their characteristics (size, weight, storage capacity, low power consumption) the number of USB keys in circulation is always increasing. This makes them one of the main means of spreading malware such as viruses, worms, Trojan horses, rootkits and adware.Automatic scanning may prevent damage of varying severity caused by this malicious software over the possibility of having to format the removable device to remove the malware.
