AutoPlay no longer working after install sonyphone

Having installed software for Sony K800i phone AutoPlay of CDs DVDs and removable drives no longer functions. Microsoft support workaround Article ID: 320281 of booting pc with sony memory stick in slot did not fix problem. Conflict appears to be with sony memory stick and windows not initializing in registry. Will Tweak UI help fix problem if I download? Running Windows XP Home. Novice user so grateful for clear advice please.

Have already been this route. Tried again, requested to view files - applied and nothing. Still absolutely no auto response when usb flash drives and memory stick inserted. Have to go My Computer and double click to view files or via Explorer.
