Due a worm, my service provider has warned me to turn Autorun off for my Flash Drive.
I have Googled this has have found complicated registry hacks.
Is there a simple way to turn Autorun off for my Flash Drive
Windows is ridiculous in this respect, the only way to turn it off properly is by modifying the registry.
I'd much rather do that than install more software!
Remember you can get the changes you need as a .reg file so you have it saved if you ever need to do it again and don't need to manually trawl through the directories in regedit and can just double-click.
Delete or rename the autorun.ini file.
Like I medntioned erlier: USB Firewall, Flash Disinfector and to turn autorun off - XP Antispy.
So the Autoplay --> "Take no action" option on the device properties don't work? The only solution is trough the registry?
This is what I did: Type this in Notepad
and save it as a .reg file, then run it, and it stops the autoplay/run
