Windows Tips; How to Disable Autorun

Windows has a feature called Autorun. Autorun is a program like autoplay. Microsoft Windows has launched it since Windows 95 generation. Generally, autorun was found in a program to make easier in the installation step.

We often meet the autorun program on the hardware driver disk. Using autorun, we don’t need to look for the setup application to install the correct driver.

Autorun looked so friendly now, but sometimes autorun can make us have a bit of peevish. That happens when several viruses spread himself using autorun. So, I think is a good idea if we turn off the autorun feature. We still can run the hardware driver installation from the setup.exe file.

So, how to disable autorun programs, do these steps:
  1. Press Win Key + R and type "gpedit.msc"
  2. Under Computer Configuration double click Administrative Templates
  3. Go to the System, and double click Turn off Autoplay
  4. In the Turn Off Autoplay Properties window, select Enabled. From the dropdown next to Turn Off Autoplay on, select All drives and then click OK. Exit Group Policy by selecting File, then choosing Exit from the menu.
