Windows 7: Autorun not running

11 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Autorun not running

When I put a dvd or cd in my drive to install a program I can see the drive run for a bit, but then the system just goes back to normal and the installer doesn't run. Can someone steer me to where in Win7 I can look to see why this is happening. I am sure it's just some setting I need to change.
