This tool can be used for removing corrupted entries from Windows XP's autoplay and even create new or modify existing so-called autoplay handlers quickly and easily.

Autoplay Repair
• Create, modify or delete (corrupted) Autoplay Handler entries from the Windows Registry.
• Have control of the main autorun sections in the Registry: add, edit or delete single entries.
• Disable or enable Autoplay for each installed drive on your computer.
• Create backups of Autoplay and Autorun sections to restore deleted or edited Registry entries if needed.
• Multi-language support.

I would disable AutoPlay asap. Virus from thumbdrives, portable harddisks, etc are able to spread when autoplay is enabled.

That is so cool, my computer doesn't like autorun, so it disabled it. I think I might just cra...I have to go change my pants now.

hold down the shift key while plugging in the device, that will disable autorun for that time.

Could someone tell me if this would solve a problem with my computer no longer auto starting game CD/DVDs anymore?

All the categories shown on the screen shots seem to be for audio or movie CD/DVDs.

Thanks

Under 'Win XP Fixes', you can disable auto play.

I don't think so - if you look at the image at the top of the thread it is useful for adding and removing handlers when you insert a disc - not repairing autoplay settings. The handlers are the list of programs that usually pop up to allow you to run an application when a disc is inserted.


MS have a utility to fix AutoPlay problems see here to download it.

If you are still stuck there are a whole pile of AutoPlay related articles here you may want to browse through.

Also here is an article from PCToday I found to fix common Autoplay issues.

actually the above program can do the following:
• Create, modify or delete (corrupted) Autoplay Handler entries from the Windows Registry. (see Fig.1)
• Disable or enable Autoplay for each installed drive on your computer. (see Fig.2)

so in the case of your CDs not auto-starting, you can try either of the options..

Sorry - being stupid I didn't notice that. The other links might still be useful though if the system is screwed up in any way!

You could use TweakUIXP for that purpose.
