Hi.

The "normal"way to disable autoruns is,start\control\panel\AutoPlay....there you can make any changes you like.

Though i wonder why you have the autoplay option under a hard disk.

Do you have installed any media player like vlc,gom,kmp....?

It seems that windows "see" the hard disks as external (usb) drives.

If you disable Autoplay in Group Policy Editor it removes that from Drive context menu.
Better late than never.
