Windows 7: No autoplay

No autoplay

Let me first state, yes, I have read the other threads related to this issue - nothing seems to be working for me. Trying to get the install wizard for a USB prepaid internet drive (aka dongle) to appear. Operating Home premium 64bit.

Shell Hardware Detection set to start & automatic - confirmed
Control Panel -> Autoplay -> "Use autoplay for all media and devices" ticked - confirmed

Refer to 3rd page, 2nd post of user easyIsle of this thread: No Autorun?.
I have NO subfolders within "policies" for hkey_current_user, let alone an "explorer" subfolder.
I DO have an "explorer" subfolder within "policies" for hkey_local_machine, however no key for "NoDriveTypeAutoRun" exists within this folder. I have tried creating a new DWORD within this folder with name "NoDriveTypeAutoRun", and have given this a decimal value of 0 and also 145, neither of which has worked.

I have found microsoft fix it 50475 from here: How to disable the Autorun functionality in Windows, however, when I try to install this I am presented with this error:
Name:  Capture.PNG
Views: 9
Size:  9.5 KB

I from here have tried to install fix it 50181 as per the directions in this article: Error Code 2738 When Running A Microsoft Fix it Solution! - Microsoft Fix it BLOG - Site Home - TechNet Blogs, though this successfully installed it did nothing to address the 2738 error that shows up when trying to install fix it 50475.

On a curious note, an icon for the USB drive appears in Devices & Printers, but no icon appears for it in My Computer. The drive is definitely functioning normally, have tested in other computer.

I think at this point there could be 2 solutions

1) If I can get fix it 50475 to install successfully my problem might be solved

2) Unblock autorun.inf files completely as per this tutorial: Autorun.inf Files - Completely Block

Whenever a bunch of different things I try don't work, I'm restoring back to a point of where my computer was at before making changes in regedit, applying fix it solutions etc etc, so I'm only holding off on trying solution number 2 because, if it doesn't work, I'll need to wait for a system restore to perform so I can undo the effect of it, so to speak.

Ideas people??


EDIT: have tried soultion 2, no success. AARRRGGGHHHHHHHH

In Services, right click on Shell Hardware Detection and choose Properties. Click on the Dependencies tab. Your should be the same as mine. Make sure all 3 are started and set to automatic. Remote Procedure Call (RPC), DCOM Server Process Launcher, and RPC Endpoint Mapper. A Guy
