CD Autorun Problem

My PC seems to have lost its CD Rom Auto run capability, although CD's run fine from the Start menu. I have checked the enable auto insert notification and this seems OK.  To be sure I have deleted this option and then reset it but still no luck.
I sometimes get the following error message on start up - "an exception has ocurred at 0028:C10B7B83 in VXD--- This was called from 0028:C15B246B".  I dont Know if this exception message relates to a seperate problem or the CD Auto Run problem.  Any help regarding Auto Run and the exception message would be appreciated.

First: enter Device Manager (roght-click on My Computer -> Properties ->
Device Manager tab) and check if you have any hardware conflict
(red/yellow exclamation mark).
Second: what your hardware ? CPU, RAM, motherboard, CD, video,
 sound, other cards.
Third: upon startup, press F8 right after message 'Starting Win95'
 and select Logged boot (BOOTLOG.TXT). Post here FAILed lines.
Fourth: post here your CONFIG.SYS / AUTOEXEC.BAT

Go into control panel
-go into "system"
-click on the "device manager" tab
-open up the "CD-ROM" tree by clicking the "+" sign
-double-click your cd rom
-click on the "settings" tab and make sure "Auto Insert Notification" has a check in it
-click ok until you get out

Do you have this problem with both audio and data CDs?
Do you have more than one CDROM drive in your system?

kmrussell, why you jumped with answer and not read question: "I
 have checked the enable auto insert notification and this seems OK.  To be sure I have deleted this
 option and then reset it but still no luck."

XS750F,
If the proposed answer does not solve your problem, please re-open the question so that other experts may submit a solution.

1) What version of Win95 are you using?
2) How is the hard drive partitioned?
3) Are you using bus mastering?
4) If so, how are the hard drive controllers listed in Device Manager?

Regards,
Ralph

Hmm, BOOTLOG looks normal, but something still bugging me.
Dynamic load failed c;\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\MRCI.VXD
Is ';' sign after C typo. Check files SYSTEM.INI and WIN.INI for
this string and replace ; with :
If you didn't found it there, run Regedit and search in registry.
Except SDVXD everything looks normal.
As Ralph said, please reject proposed answer.

I once had problem with autorun. Autoinsert notification was checked etc. The obviously is another way to tweak registry so that datacds and audioCDs don't autoplay

Get Tweak-UI from Microsoft freeware Powertoys. In Tweak-UI there is a tab, Paranoia. There You can either get rid of autoplay of dataCDs and audioCDs or get them back ;)

To overcome the problem I have re-loaded windows 95. This is'nt subtle, and has'nt told me what went wrong - but the problem seems to have been resolved.  CD Auto run is now O.K. and I am not getting any more exception messages.  I have been left with a slight start up problem as my ststem.ini file seems to be looking for file names - ntkern.vxd, enable.vxd, and mtrr.vxd which are no longer present.  As this is now a different problem I will post it as a seperate question.
Thanks to everyone for your help and interest
