Blocking Autorun

I have a USB device that has an Autorun.ini. Within this file it list Autorun.exe which installs some software.

I am trying to deploy a specific set of software across my company and the last thing I want is that each time we plugin this device it tries to autorun the software (which will conflict with my custom software)

I tried to disable autorun by having it "Take No Action" yet it still runs the installer.

Any ideas or solutions?

It's write protected unfortunately. I was messing with TweakUI and found a solution.

??  So you're going to install Tweak UI across the company?

Only across the required machines that have to ignore autorun. It's either a regedit or a tweakUI. Management are more comfortable with tweak UI. It's also ghosted across all machines so the one setup is used by everyone.

I am by no means an admin on this, but Management have no issue with the propsed solution.
