Disable autorun on Small Business server 2003

I have searched this site for an answer but cannot find it.
This should be an easy 500 points for someone.

My question:
I have one server.  It is running Small Business server 2003.  I attached a new  usb drive to it and an autorun script ran.  I thought recent Microsoft patches had disabled autorun.  I guess I am wrong.

What must I do to totally prevent any autorun from executing?

If you explore the USB drives contents (unhide hidden files) you will see an autorun.inf file on the root of the drive.

Delete/rename this and it will stop the autorun script.

Alternatively you could just format the drive :)
