VBS.Runauto is a Visual Basic script worm that copies itself in the root folder of all drives (including removable devices) except floppy drives.
Symantec strongly recommends that customers take specific steps to control the execution of applications referenced in autorun.inf files that may be located on removable and network drives. Threats such as this one frequently attempt to spread to other computers using these avenues. Configuration changes made to a computer can limit the possibility of new threats compromising it. For more information, see the following document: How to prevent a virus from spreading using the "AutoRun" feature
