Thanks to Geeks we have just finished getting rid of a virus and as I had no DVD autorun/play I was advised to do the following:
1. Click Start, click Run, type Gpedit.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. Under Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, and then click System.
3. In the Settings pane, right-click Turn on Autoplay, and then click Properties.
5. Click OK to close the Turn off Autoplay Properties dialog box.
6. Restart the computer.
When I typed in Gpedit.msc into the Run box and pressed ok an error message popped up saying that
Windows could not find it and was I sure that I had typed in the name correctly and to do a Searc.
I then tried it in Search using Local Disc and My Computer settings but no go.
