Autoplay Menu appears very briefly when inserting SD card Windows 7

For some reason, a Windows 7 64 bit edition laptop I did some unrelated work on has an odd Autoplay situation: upon insertion of a CD, DVD or SD card, the autoplay menu appears for about half a second and disappears.

Interestingly, when I click on Start -->  Run(search) autoplay, I can force a Nikon picture acquisition utility to grab the pics every time, but autoplay simply doesn't work.

Anyone have any ideas??

Is there any active anti-virus running on the system, if so is on-access scanning enabled?
Might be worth disabling temporarily if so. Antivirus packages are getting more and more nervous about autorun.

Have you tried going into the Autoplay manager, and hitting the button at the bottom to "Reset Defaults"?
