I don't know if this is directly a result of all the scans and deletions but when I dropp a disc in my c drive it used to automatically run now it doesn't and I dont know how to make it start manually. Der, I know. advice?
    Thanks in advance, Sean

    Er..you mean D drive ?

    This the most likely google -

    Download Tweak UI A very useful program.

    In the menu in TweakUI, go to My Computer -> AutoPlay -> Drives.

    Make sure every drive in here is ticked, then hit OK.

    If everything is already ticked, untick everything, click apply,

    retick everything and hit apply again.

    It didn`t say it would run when you click finish. :)

    It`s a very small program,that just runs from

    the system 32 folder.

    You can run it from the All programs menu (Power Toys for Windows),

    or just go to Start/Run and paste/type in tweakui.exe /ok

    See HERE

    Did you look at the Types and Handlers tabs ?

    The Auto Run Repair Tool sometimes works (requires XP SP2).

    Sigh.... still nothing. I ticked and reticked, enabled autoplay and ran a scan on drive which said everything was ok.
