How can I stop the annoying pop-up that appears when I connect a USB device (eg. memory stick) to a PC thatis running windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro.
Preferrably, I would like to know the registry settings rather than any other method.
This is urgent,

Thanks,

Roger

Key:  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer  
Value Name:  NoDriveTypeAutoRun  
Data Type:  DWORD  
  0x91 - dafault value
0xDD - turn off autoplay for everything except your CD drives.
0xFF - turn it off for everything

I hope this helps
