Auto play Problems- Help Please!

If I put a program Cd into my D or E drive (DVD & CD drives respectively) they no longer automatically run. I have looked in Auto Play options but they do not give the action of simply running the program CD- the nearest that I can get is to choose the CD as "Mixed" content, and then select the action "Open folder to use files using windows explorer".
What I am looking for is to simply run a CD. My daughter is now heavily into using the computer and could manage much better if the inserted prog. CD simply ran on insertion- where am I going wrong?
I am running Windows XP Home. Many tahnks in advacnce!

I had previously downloaded AutoFix (for probs with a card reader) I have tried to use it but it says that I must "Log Off and then log on again". I logged off wiondows and back on but still get the log off/on message. I have no idea how to log off/on auto fix- any ideas?
Thanks!

Try rebooting the system, as what you are doing is logging of and then on again.
