An old dog needed to learn a new trick.

It is working now and I just tried it and it works.

This may seem like a stupid question.

Do you need the usb icon in the system tray or can you exit this, and when you place a usb into the computer it will automatically show if you have malware on the comp? :-[

Do you have to have it running in system processes.  :-[

Cheers

Yes. The monitoring requires the resident component to be loaded. If you exit you'll get no alert and any 'autorun.inf' will be allowed to run.
