Windows XP Tips :: How To Turn off Autoplay

Autoplay play feature is not only available in CD drives, but also in the flash drives and external hard drives that you connect to your PC. In any case your external drives or CDs or flash drives are infected with virus, spywares or malwares, then chances are there that your PC could also be infected with the autoplay feature. Best way to combat this issue is to disable autoplay on all your system drives.

To disable autoplay on all drives, best method is to change it through Group Policy Editor. In order to do this, you have to perform the following steps:
  1. At first, click on the Start button of your Windows XP OS and then click Run from the right side menu

  2. Then type gpedit.msc and press enter.


  3. A window will be popped up immediately titled "Group Policy" editor.

  4. Navigate to: Local Computer Policy -> Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System.


  5. Then click on the System. In the right panel, when you scroll down a little bit, you will find "Turn off Autoplay", Just double click on it.

  6. A new window will be popped up titled "Turn off Autoplay Properties". Now, select enabled and choose All drives from the drop down list and then click OK button.

That's it. Now autoplay feature has been disabled on All drives which you connect to your PC.

Hey thanks a lot for this tip. I hated always having that autoplay box always come up every time I put in a new USB drive. Works perfect!

Software development is one of the most lucrative professions of the current time. The rising number of software development companies even in the countries like India and China has given enough impetus to the youth to pursue careers in the IT sector in general. The modern software companies like http://www.infysolutions.com have a number of sectors whereby the employment opportunities are increasing.

viagra sale is one of the few prescription drugs that require almost no publicity. You can find news stories, detailed description and jokes in print, on television and on the internet. Sexual dysfunction is a very serious issue for those who are suffering as well as for their partners.

Got this shared to colleagues via FB. Thanks Shaon. But the IE7 tips didn't work anymore in my fourth PC! The first three tries were excellent! May be Microsoft has done something about it?
