    This should work if you follow all of these step however you probably only need to regedit but here it is. You'll need to use the Run command, this works on most of the current versions of Windows.

    Code:
    gpedit.msc
      User Configuration
        Administrative Templates
          Windows Components
            AutoPlay Policies
               Turn Off Autoplay
                  Enabled
                    Options:
                       All drives (drop down)
               Don't set the always do this checkbox
                  Enabled
                    OK
               Turn off Autoplay for non-volume devices
                  Enabled
                    OK
               Default behavior for AutoRun
                  Enabled
                    OK
    
    services.msc
      Shell Hardware Detection
        Startup type: Automatic (drop down)
        Service status: Started
          OK
    
    regedit
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
        SYSTEM
          CurrentControlSet
            services
              cdrom
                AutoRun (REG_DWORD)
                  1 (Hexadecimal)
                    OK
        SOFTWARE
          Microsoft
            Windows
              CurrentVersion
                Policies
                  Explorer
                    NoDriveTypeAutoRun (REG_DWORD)
                      91 (Hexadecimal)
                        OK
    
    Hope it isn't too much I think I have everything correctly laid out.
