Windows 7: Autorun not running

11 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Autorun not running

When I put a dvd or cd in my drive to install a program I can see the drive run for a bit, but then the system just goes back to normal and the installer doesn't run. Can someone steer me to where in Win7 I can look to see why this is happening. I am sure it's just some setting I need to change.

No Autorun?
OK, so I'm not sure why this is happening... For some reason it seems that autorun prompts are entirely disabled on my laptop, I'll put in a CD and nothing happens, I plug in a hard drive and nothing happens, etc. I don't get the options window like I did before I did a clean install. I even...
