Topic: How to disable the Autorun functionality in Windows

For operating systems that do not include Gpedit.msc, follow these steps:

Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.

Locate and then click the following entry in the registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\NoDriveTypeAutorun

Right-click NoDriveTypeAutoRun, and then click Modify.

In the Value data box, type 0xFF to disable all types of drives.

Or, to selectively disable specific drives,
use a different value as described in the "How to selectively disable specific Autorun features" section.
Click OK, and then exit Registry Editor.
Restart the computer.
