Panda USB Vaccine is a free security program developed by Panda Security. It falls under the category of Security & VPN, specifically in the subcategory of Antivirus. This program is designed to protect your computer and USB memory devices from potential virus infections.
The main feature of Panda USB Vaccine is its ability to disable the autorun option on your computer and the autorun.inf functionality on USB devices.
