What is it called?

The window that pops up when you insert a flash drive or CD?

Autorun or Autoplay?

How do I disable it?

Hello netadict.

They're both similar in functionality.

When you insert a Disc or Flash Drive into your system Autorun is executed before Autoplay. Autoplay is just the subset of Autorun that displays the options window that pops up when you insert the flash drive/CD.

Follow these tutorials to disable them both:-

AutoPlay - Enable or Disable

Autorun.inf Files - Completely Block

For more information on the differences between Autoplay and Autorun:-

Hope that helps!

Thanks, the links you provided were great

A general question: As far as I know pressing the "mark as solved button" blocks the topic and prevents others from posting in that topic, is that "polite" to do?

Ermm.. you can mark it as solved, i think others can continue posting in that thread if they have a follow up question or query.

So go ahead, and I'm glad those links helped you out!
