In additon to other problems with post "Windows "'Repair Install"', this problem was in effect even before I did the Repair Install, and thought that it would be corrected, however that was not the case.  When I insert CD or DVD in drive, I was no longer getting an auto-run, in other words, it no longer gave me the choice of which programs to use to open the disk.

Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
