    I've turned off all the auto-play functions -- for each type of CD, I told it to take no action (annoying how you have to specify each type of CD and each drive separately... more Windows "idiot-proofing" that just makes things more difficult for people who don't want to be locked into the defaults) -- but when I insert a CD, a "My Computer" window still opens up displaying the drive's contents, even though I specifically said take no action. How do I stop this stupid window from automatically coming up?
