Monitoring autorun.inf

The latest version of PAP includes an option to monitor for autorun.inf changes (defaulted to enabled).

What are the advantages/disadvantages of enabling or disabling this?

On the surface, it seems like if you don't manually edit autorun.inf while you have PAP running, there is no reason not to disable this functionality, but maybe I'm not seeing the whole picture.

Simple Warning

It's a simple warning mechanism to let you know your autorun.inf on your removable drive changed since the last time you ran the platform. Some viruses and malware attempt to spread in this fashion.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

One-time per run?

Thanks. So it's a one-time check each time the platform is executed?

Yes

That's correct
