Open Windows Explorer and use notepad to see which executable program it is trying to invoke. You can manually open it as a workaround.

How to disable Autoplay of Audio CDs and USB Drives in windows


All recent versions of widows contain features called AutoPlay and AutoRun. AutoPlay lets you choose which program to use to start different kinds of media, such as music CDs, or CDs or DVDs containing photos. For example, the first time you try to play a music CD, AutoPlay asks which media player you want to use, if you have more than one installed on your computer. You can change AutoPlay settings for each media type.Autorun is the technology used to start many programs or enhanced content (such as videos on a music CD) automatically when you insert a CD or USB drives into your computer. This is different from AutoPlay, but the result are the same, when inserted, the CD or USB drive starts automatically, using a particular program. Autorun is incorporated into the media types that use it, and you can't modify it.
When a disc is inserted or a drive is connected to your computer, Windows looks in the root directory of the disc or drive for a file named autorun.inf. If found, Windows executes the instructions in that file. ( whether it be start the music or install the virus.)
For example, an autorun.inf file on a CD might contain a line that reads open=setup.exe. This tells your computer to launch a setup program as soon as the CD is inserted into the drive

Removable USB/thumb drives use the Autorun feature to load files when the drives are plugged into the USB port. Malware exploits the Autorun feature to spread from thumb drive to PC. Disable the autorun feature to prevent malware from spreading.

For XP users:

1.Click Start and then click Run. Type gpedit.msc and click OK. The Group Policy window will open.


2. In the left pane, double-click Administrative TemplatesIn the right pane, double-click System, scroll down the list and double-click Turn Off Autoplay

3.In the Turn Off Autoplay Properties window, select Enabled. From the dropdown next to Turn Off Autoplay on, select All drives and then click OK.


4.Exit Group Policy by selecting File, then choosing Exit from the menu.

    I have Samsung R590 Laptop which i bought December last year... Before the USB ports used to work properly and display wt ever data is present in the usb ... but now it reads the data but all appear as...

    Microsoft Knowledge Base
    Article 971029
    describes an update to Autorun that restricts AutoPlay
    functionality to CD and DVD media. This update is intended to stop AutoPlay
    functionality from working on USB drives, external hard drives, or network
    shares. This update is available for supported editions of Windows XP, Windows
    Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008.

    Removable USB/thumb drives use the Autorun feature to load files when the drives are plugged into the USB port. Malware exploits the Autorun feature to spread from thumb drive to PC. Disable the autorun feature to prevent malware from spreading.

    The preceding describes what has likely happened to your USB ports due to Windows update disabling the autorun feature for USB thumbdrives. The thumbdrive may no longer present its data properly unless you manually invoke the autorun in its root.

    When we connect the camera to the system it is not opening the photo gallery it is giving autorun problem

    if the autorun window pops up warning of a problem then there might be a virus attack in your memory card. please clean your memory card and your system using an original antivirus software and after copying all the photos in your system format the memory card.
    also please confirm me whether the window which pops up is autorun or autoplay. if the name is the window is autoplay it is not a problem actually.

    My computer does not have a AutoPlay feature in it so I can insert and run my Cd-ROM PC games. It must have come with one but I can't find it.

    Enabling AutoPlay on a data and audio CD (Windows XP)
    1. Open My Computer or Explorer
    2. Highlight the CD-ROM drive, right-click the CD-ROM drive and click properties.
    3. Click the AutoPlay tab. Within this section you will be able to specify all Windows AutoPlay features.
    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
    Thanks, Joe
