Many of you may find pops up when you insert the external hard drive, USB, CD, DVD handy or some of you may find it annoying. Personally, I don’t like it. It can spread the viruses in your computer. You don’t have to open the USBs or CDs for the virus to spread. Many virus can be spread through it. So, why not turn it off! In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to disable the Auto Play in Windows 7. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate Edition x86.
1. First, Go to the Start Screen, open Run and type gpedit.msc which will execute configuration screen.
3. Enable the Auto Play off by clicking on Enabled and Select the all drives if you want to turn off Auto play in all of your drives or select CD-ROM and removable media drives if you want to disable Auto Play in your external hard drives, USBs, CDs and DVDs.
This is how it’s done, simple and easy!
