Disable the Autorun on Windows



Its a bit annoying to insert a CD and have Windows open it Internet Explorer and display a bunch of information. I would rather just be able to navigate through the disc's file system and go directly to what I need. Fortunately, it's easy to create a registry setting that disables Auto Play:



1. Navigate through the Registry Editor to

   HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer.

2. Create a DWORD named NoDriveTypeAutoRun.
3. Set the value to 000000FF.
