To Minimize the Virus Threat especially Stuxnet .. ;-)

As for a virus that infects PCs via USB thumb drive, several viruses have been detected, including W32/Autorun (For the sake of convenience, we call them "Traditional USB-thumb-drive infection virus".) Traditional USB-thumb-drive infection virus can be prevented by disabling the "auto-execute" feature of Windows*. On the other hand, the new attack method that has been detected this time does not use the "auto-execute" feature and therefore, we cannot prevent Stuxnet virus attacks only by disabling the "auto-execute" feature.
