No obvious symptoms.
Autorun.inf files are not malicious by themself and are usually created by other malware; therefore, simply deleting it won't clean the actual infection. Please let BitDefender disinfect your files.

Autorun (or autoplay) is a feature of Microsoft Windows Operating systems that dictates what action will be taken
when a new drive is mounted or accesed. The structure of an autorun file usually includes information like the program
that will be executed when the drive is mounted, accesed, etc. Autorun.inf will always be located inside the root
directory of the medium, and whether the operating system will interpret it or not depends on some special registry keys:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Sofware\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRunHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Sofware\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutoRunHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Sofware\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveAutoRunHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Sofware\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoDriveAutoRun

This particular malware comes very obfuscated, containing large amounts of garbage, in order to make detection difficult.
Its true purpose is however revealed by the following line:shelLExECUte=RuNdLl32.EXE .\RECYCLER\S-5-3-42-2819952290-8240758988-879315005-3665\jwgkvsq.vmx,ahaezedrn
This means that whenever the drive is accesed, rundll32.exe (a system program) will loadRECYCLER\S-5-3-42-2819952290-8240758988-879315005-3665\jwgkvsq.vmx
(a dll) and call exported function ahaezedrn
