Look at the settings/options of Registry Mechanic? Better yet, stop using it.

Yeah, but is it like deleting a registry key or something? What exactly is it doing to disable Shell hardware? Odd. Well at least I know what was causing it to disable now.

Thank you for your help!

Many people feel autorun is a security breech as it has been used by malware creeps to infect computers. Autorun works by doing what the directions in a file called autorun.inf tell it to do, which means windows starts whatever program Open= statement. In the case of malware that is what start the infection. Info here: Autorun, what is it?

There are more conflicting software.
Some software application, especially disc image image editing program and virtual drive utilities such as Roxio Easy CD Creator, Nero, PowerISO, MagicISO, Alcohol 120%, and even some other programs such as Rhapsody, MotoHelper or Motorola driver software and various VMWare virtualization products like VMWare Server and VMWare Workstation will cause conflict with AutoPlay functionality.
If you’re facing the drive won’t Auto Play or Auto Run issue after installing certain software, try to uninstall the software to see if it fixes the problem. Better still if it’s possible to roll back the system using System Restore to earlier Restore Point when the software is not yet installed.
Good luck!
