I bought PC Tools Performance, and installed it. I did not like the way it came up every time I bootup , and booted from Hibernate, It was checking the Registry. After a few days I uninstalled it. Now I cannot get AutoPlay to work, I put in a music disc, nothing happenes, Same with a DVD film, put in a Key drive no auto play comes up but the drive is accessible in Computer. I have tried Control Panel,/ Autoplay and checked every thing is correctly ticked. How can I get my AutoPlay back
