Disabling it just makes it not come up for new devices and not do the saved settings for old devices. A program like skype for instance will still see a webcam ect. If you can see the device in devices and printers it can be seen by all other applications.


Oh okay, that is Auto Play. I'm happy with Auto Play in the various Operating System versions. Maybe Autoruns can override Autoplay rules? Could be autorun is what I am seeking to find more about? Would that resolve the particular question that I have raised?

What if say for example, SLR device had been added to devices and printers while devices was enabled in Operating System? Then afterwards disabled. Perhaps by auto run. Would then the SLR still show in devices and printers, yet not seen by other applications and utilities?

Neither Autorun nor Autoplay will enable or disable devices, these are the differences.
