    I did a search on this and was surprised that nothing came up. It seems that auto.exe is a virus and it has infected my SGS. It places itself in the Recycler bin of my SD card. Has anyone else here had experience with this virus? Any tips on how to get rid of it permanently, as it keeps resurfacing on my phone/computer? TIA

    Oh this is gold. android can't run exe files. That's for Windows only.

    Make a backup of your SD card and then format it.
