Hi I was referred here from another topic in hopes that you may be able to help me re-enable my Autoplay, which was disabled when I used combofix but when I uninstalled it Autoplay was still disabled. This includes when I insert a cd or usb device. I can still access the data from the devices, it's just that Autoplay is disabled and I would like to re-enable it.
