In August, after I deleted the autorun entry, I went to a site with a good reputation, but I am not going to say which one because I don't want to seem like I am advertising anything. I got a free scan but they wont fix major things unless you pay so I don't want to go back for another scan. I thought I had deleted a screenshot of the scan that made me think I had damaged something to do with my boot ability but I couldn't remember what the message was.
They said my computer was not set for automatic updates from microsoft but on the day of the scan I checked it and saw that it was indeed set for automatic updates. So I figured maybe I shouldn't trust them. Sometime later, maybe a few weeks later, I got a microsoft update which proved I can still get microsoft updates.
I have heard the complete set of restore disks only cost about $20. If they don't have any, I can learn how to use linux.
But I deleted or disabled any autorun or autoplay thing I could find. When I was done I couldn't play a dvd movie automaticly like before. I got to wondering did I also delete my ability to boot from a cd if I ever needed to?
Anyway the issue is resolved. I don't have to boot from a cd and if I ever need to, I can ask for help then. I have wasted a lot of time worrying about deleting something that I might never need. The microsoft fixits from microsoft's website made some changes to my computer and indicated my computer is ok now.
I feel better having found the screenshots and looking at the info. Not as bad as it seemed when I didn't have time to look at them and accidently put them in a folder I don't normally put pics in. This is what they said about a boot issue:
Recovery Console status-Your computer recovery console is not properly adjusted. This could lead to being unable to resolve a no boot situation.
The scan site was wrong about microsoft updates so they might have been wrong about that to. Anyway, now that I can look at it, I realize it says "could lead to". That doesn't mean it will.
