Windows XP SP2 Auto Run Feature

  DerekJJBrooks 17:14 14 Jan 2005

Hi Everyone,
I have head to reinstall Win XP Home edition and SP2.

However I have noticed that after installing a few programmes using autorun, it ceased to work and I had to go into explorer, and run set up for each one after.

I have looked for the feature to see if it can be disabled/re-enabled without success.

I remember with Win 98, you could alter settings.

I have look at properties of my cd rom drive, but see nothing that will help.

Any thoughts.

Right click your CD ROM drive and select properties, the second tab along on the top is the auto run properties, enable/disable the feature you want from there.

My computor - right click drive - properties - autoplay tab - select file type from menu box - tick box select action to perform - click on action from list - click apply

Do you select "mixed content" and open using windows explorer.

Can't see anything else that would work.

Thanks Everyone,

Will have to download VoG's suggestion, other suggestions have made no difference.

Will Advise.
