    I was going through old posts and I can across one posted by alkohol where he goes on to state (Below)

    My question is does anyone know who to disable autorun for Vista?

    NOTE: Before you're going to rip any DVDs/movies or insert any original DVDs into your drive, let's "disable AutoRun" (this is highly recommend) to prevent from getting hijacked by Settec's Alpha-DVD protection. Some DVDs will install bunch of craps into your system without your consent if you have AutoRun turn "On" and it will abort or crash your system when it's transcoding or burning. In addition, it even goes as far as removing your burners, etc.

    How to Disable Autorun via Win XP Pro

    (01) click on Start
    (02) Run, then type regedit then click OK (yes... exactly like this)
    (03) click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    (04) click SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet
    (05) click on Services
    (06) highlight the folder on Cdrom
    (07) right click on "AutoRun" on the right hand panel
    (08) then choose Modify and change the Value Data to 0 (zero), click OK
    (09) now EXIT out from regedit
    (10) restart your computer/system and you'll be fine, AutoRun has been disabled.
