Disabling windows XP / 7 autorun

Run > regedit.exe

goto > HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
or ( HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer)

Set Value > NoDriveTypeAutoRun = "ff" (255)

Autoplay is disabled on any drive if the value of NoDriveAutoRun (in HKLM or HKCU) or NoDriveTypeAutoRun (in HKLM or HKCU) is set to disable it. But if NoDriveAutoRun or NoDriveTypeAutoRun appear in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, the corresponding entries in HKEY_CURRENT_USER are ignored.
