Block autorun on CD and DVD Tags: DVD CD-Rom Windows XP Last response: October 28, 2010 5:02 AM in Windows XP Share Nishadk08 October 28, 2010 3:24:17 AM Why we block autorun? Because during autorun process it may be attack of virus , mainly in pendrive. It's a simple technique- 1.start>run>regedit 2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>System>Current Control Set>Services>cdrom change the value of autorun to '0' More about : block autorun dvd tigsounds October 28, 2010 5:02:59 AM And your question is? Mine is... Why not use Windows Explorer, right-click the CVD/DVD drive, Choose Properties, Autorun, and under "Select Action to perform" choose "Take no action"? This keeps people who are too stupid to own a computer out of Regedit. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
