Hi,
I use combofix a long time, and I noticed that disables the autoplay in Xp, but in Vista, (run as administrator) does not disable this feature.

Why? Have you noticed?

This program works differently depending on the OS?

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

This feature is automatically disabled in Vista as its a big security exploit


There is a registry fix to restore this setting on your XP, cant remember exactly where to find it though

I agree that it is safer to disable the autoplay, but I will not explain why combofix run on vista premium has not disabled this feature. :)


Combofix uses different code depending on which system is running? (if-then-else)

I thought I already explained it. Vista doesn't have that security exploit so theres nothing for CF to disable

Now that we're talking about autoplay, when I left-double-click on the icon of my DVD_ROM in "My Computer", the inserted DVD starts to play with "Windows Media Player".
Since I just associated my Power DVD program with the ifo files (VIDEO_TS.IFO), I just would like to do a double-left-click on the DVD-ROM folder (without my WMP starting !) and afterwards go inside the VIDEO_TS folder and double-click that VIDEO_TS.IFO file to start the DVD (instead of R-clicking and having to scroll and choose for "open with" ... etc.). I prefer L-clicks to R-clicks anyway because with R-clicks you always have to scroll in a menu.
