Conficker worm

worm confickur creates a folder in the autorun dialog box of flash drive and names it "Open folder to view files ? Publisher not specified" according to Microsoft. How to remove this from the dialog box?

The second part of my question is that when I insert a flash drive in the socket sometimes the autorun dialog box does not open, instead a folder opens displaying all the content of the flash drive root directory. Does this mean conficker is still residing on the drive, the worm was removed by Malwarebyte? How to desable the autorun?
