How to disable Autoplay of CD, DVD and USB in Windows 7?

    This doesn’t work good! There is some bug in gpedit.msc, Microsoft even released a patch for it. In this way, autorun/autoplay viruses still can get into PC using these options. The only working solution I found, is using Autoplay Disabler Pro ( It’s simple to use, but works good.
