Windows 7: Autoplay on SD cards

Autoplay on SD cards

I've found that when I insert an SD card I get the Autoplay drop down window which is fine. However, I'd like to add additional programs to the list eg I use Faststone Image Viewer and would like that in the list. Any idea if I can achieve that? Also the drop down list includes 'Nero' which is a program that I no longer use, or have. Is there a way to remove it from the options?

Use the Default Programs editor:

You should be aware though, AutoPlay can be dangerous. It's probably one of the worst inventions Microsoft has come up with security-wise. If someone lets you borrow a USB stick or cd or something similar and you have auto-play enabled for these devices the system may automatically start up the program(s) on the media and infect your computer.
