Windows 7: Re-enable Autorun

Re-enable Autorun

I recently underwent some issues with a virus, and after getting my computer back up, my autorun seems to have been disabled. I can't figure out what is wrong...
Everything seems to be working fine, except the autorun files i wrote for all of my 200dvds, hard drives, flash drives, etc. are all being completely ignored. Can anyone help?

Some anti-malware tools disable autorun. It is a common means of infection.

Unfortunately, I don't have gpedit, as I am running home premium... I realize the risk of having autorun enabled, but I still want it.

click Start
in the search window type "autoplay"
select "Autoplay" and a window should open that has the option to enable autoplay on all devices or on individual devices.

I have already checked, and both NoDriveAutoRun and NoDriveTypeAutoRun values are as they should be... but autorun still refuses to work.

If the registry values are set to enable autorun, then try this

go to the AutoPlay interface and set Software and Games to "Install or run program from your media"

No, still not working. I have also temporarily removed all virus protection, so that doesn't seem to be causing it...
