Autorun - just a silly question (I think)

  swapper 07:46 18 Jul 2004

Despite "Microsoft Knowledge Base" "Microsoft Autorun-Fix" "scannow" a couple of Reg. cleaners, and a lot of useful imput on this Forum, I have lost the autorun facility on two PC's, both WinXP SP1 HE.

Since the initial clean installation of WinXP, both machines have had an extra HD installed.

Bearing in mind that "I know nutting", is it possible that something in the registry (or elswhere) is looking in the wrong place for the wrong thing.

The two drives (dvd/rom and cd/rw) were originally "D" and "E" drives, they are now "F" and "G"

Whadya fink? :-)

Used msconfig and found that with "Shell Hardware Detection" disabled, the Autorun works fine now ?
