    Hey All,

    I built my computer about two years ago, and recently I've had issues with Autorun in my Windows 7 Professional OS. It used to be when I put in a CD or USB stick, it would show up and ask me what I wanted to do. It now fails to do this. I have gone to the autorun settings in the CP and changed them all to ask me first, saved the settings, but still no auto run box.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Try this: Click Start > Search > gpedit.msc and press Enter. Now browse to Computer Configuration\ Administrative Templates\ Windows Components\ Autoplay Policies\ Turn off Autoplay. To Enable change the value of Turn off Autoplay to Disabled.

    Although that was previuosly not configured, that did not solve the problem. Any other ideas like that?
