This method can be used only on Windows XP Professional Edition. This is not possible on Windows XP Home Edition.
1.Open the Group Policy Editor (Start > Run, type in “gpedit.msc” and press [Enter]).
2.Go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates> Windows Components > WindowsExplorer.
3.Here, you’ll find “Hide these specified drives in My Computer” and “Prevent access to drives from My Computer”.
4.The difference between the two settings is that “Prevent access” will allow the user to see the drive icon, but will give an error message when he tries to access it.
5.“Hide” will remove the icon so the user won’t see it, but the drive can still be accessed by using Start > Run and keying in the drive letter.
6.Under this setting, after you click the radio button next to “Enable”, you’ll see several options. Choose the one you want to
apply, for example, “Restrict A and B drivesonly”. You’ll notice that the options here are restricted; you cannot, for example,
choose to restrict drives A, B and D.

Tell me more about the domain..is this computer at a place of business? Does the network have an administrator, or someone whom you go to for network/computer issues? This may be a setting that only they can manage -- there is a chance you do not have admin rights on this computer.
Thanks for all the help i was able to resolve the issue.
Resolution: I used a program called "Disk drive security". This allowed me to Hide, Lock, and Disallow auto run for the drive. Great application to try!
