because 
their primary fear is not the criminals. They fear ordinary Americans whose 
lives and freedom their policies are destroying.

|  Gman and everybody else that may be interested....
|
|  1. This is the autorun.inf for the portable version of AIRoboform.
|   Can you help me figure out what purpose the various lines are
|  for?  Below is my guess as to what it all means and how to use it.
|   I got a lot of help from the MSDN website here:
|  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb776823.aspx
|  (http://tinyurl.com/69mu8y).  That link came from WikiPedia at
|  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autorun  (http://tinyurl.com/sdkfs)
|  - - - - - - - - - - - -
|  [AutoRun]
|  open=PortableRoboForm.exe
|  action=Launch RoboForm2Go
|  shell\RoboForm2Go=Launch RoboForm2Go
|  shell\RoboForm2Go\command=PortableRoboForm.exe
|  icon=PortableRoboForm.exe
|  label=RoboForm2Go
|  - - - - - - - - - - - -
|  2.
|  a. [AutoRun] is maybe just a label?
|  b. open= identifies what will run/launch when the action displayed
|  in the autorun dialog box is selected
|  c. action= specifies the text that will appear as an option in the
|  autorun dialog box. d. shell\RoboForm2Go= specifies the text in
|  the context menu when the drive bearing the label RoboForm2Go is
|  right clicked e. shell\RoboForm2Go\command= specifies the command
|  to execute when that option on the context menu is selected.
|  f. icon= tells the system where to find the icon to display for
|  the drive. label=  specifies the label or name of the drive.
|
|
|  6. If all of the files are located in the root with the
|  autorun.inf file will any pathnames be required?  If they were in
|  a subfolder beneath the root how would a relative pathname be
|  constructed?  I think it would need to be a relative path since
|  the drive letter might be different on various computers the drive
|  gets plugged into.  Is anything special required to make a batch
|  file run under a windows environment?
|  7. I think the shell lines could be optional but if not then they
|  would look like this: shell\PortableApps=PortableApps
|  shell\PortableApps\command=portableapps.bat
|  8. I think additional shell lines could be added to start each app
|  separately... such as: shell\PortableApps=RoboForm2Go
|  shell\PortableApps\command=RoboForm executable
|  shell\PortableApps=aSuite shell\PortableApps\command=aSuite
|  executable
