    Try System Restore.

    The antivirus probably disable autorun/autoplay. It's a handy feature (but also a common method to accidentally spread a virus which infects the autorun files on a USB drive)

    But if you want to restore it,
    > Delete the current autorun.inf and autorun.exe files on the USB drive
    > Run the Autoplay Repair Wizard
