    I disable Autorun feature.Very easy.Make sure to backup your registry just in case.I have XP and used the following :
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _________________
    For operating systems that do not include Gpedit.msc, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
    2. Locate and then click the following entry in the registry:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutorun
    3. Right-click NoDriveTypeAutoRun, and then click Modify.
    4. In the Value data box, type 0xFF to disable all types of drives. Or, to selectively disable specific drives, use a different value as described in the "How to selectively disable specific Autorun features" section.
    5. Click OK, and then exit Registry Editor.
    6. Restart the computer.
    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _________________

    I used this value 0xFF Disables AutoPlay on all kinds of drives.
