Windows 7: Missing autoplay options after lexmark software install

Missing autoplay options after lexmark software install


I recently purchased a lexmark printer and installed the driver and software. After installation I tried to import some pictures off of my sd card using the card reader on my laptop. previous to the lexmark software install I had several options for importing the picture, I usually chose "import using windows". Now that option is gone along with all other options (that I rarely used) and it has been replaced with the lexmark productivity center.

I looked at my autoplay options and all the old options are still there for importing videos, but pictures have only productivity studio and general options.

So I uninstalled the software and rebooted, the productivity option is gone, but the old ones have not returned.

Lastly I tried to do a system restore, but it hangs up on initializing for hours and never completes.

Any ideas on how to get my old autoplay options back? I assume it is a registry setting

Thanks in advance
