This is harder for typical malware removal programs to hunt down; however with Malwarebytes you can easily do away with any malware stored in autorun files using the Flash Scan feature. This feature is only available to registered users, not on the trial version.
Malwarebytes' prevention techniques include blocking potentially malicious websites and performing quick scans after a programs installation among others. Other tools include Malwarebytes' Chameleon which allows Malwarebytes to conduct its usual activities even after it has been blocked by malware. You can also back up your important files to Malwarebytes' cloud so that your data, if lost on your computer, can be recovered through there server.
