    Autoplay was disabled by some antivirus program, I want to enable it again but it doesn't work. Both optical and virtual dvd drives have no autoplay. I tried tweakui, set all drives to enable autoplay, but it didn't work.

    Try this fix: Enable CD Autoplay

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Reboot.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

    If no luck,

    Try the AutoPlay Repair Tool.

    Ok, I think "autorun" should be fixed, if a game disc is in the dvd-drive, the game should automatically run.
    What fix should work, because that fix used for "autoplay" ?

    I think you simply right-click it and delete it. It's a simple .EXE file. It didn't require any installation, did it? If not, simply delete the program if you don't need it anymore.
