Cannot disable autoplay on Windows XP
Posted on 2014-01-10
Hello. From a few days ago the autoplay functionality is enabled on my PC. I can't disable it. I've administrator privileges. I've executed GPEDIT.MSC > Computer configuration and User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Enable Turn Off Autoplay for all drives. I've scanned my PC for viruses without threats. But the problem remains. Each time I insert a USB pen drive, the computer opens automatically the drive.
However if I hold down the Shift key after the insertion of the drive, the computer don't opens the drive.
I use Windows XP SP3. Windows is updated and I've also installed the update WindowsXP-KB967715-x86-ENU referred in some web pages.
