This is my first post on this forum, so hello to all.
Last week, as part of a virus removal, I was advised by Webroot support to run Combofix on my system.
Thankfully it removed the problem, but since running Combofix, autoplay has been disabled on all of my USB drives, audio CDs do not play automatically, and the scanner and camera wizard no longer runs when I plug in my USB digital camera.
I must add, that everything was running fine before Combofix did its stuff.
Before posting this, I did a lot of research, and it seems I am not alone with this problem.
I am now fully aware that Combofix disables these functions by design, and I also fully understand the reasons why it does so.
I also fully understand that there are alternative methods of accessing data on all of the above mentioned devices, and have done so successfully.
However, the reason for my post is to ask whether or not it is possible to have the CHOICE as to whether or not autoplay runs on my computer, and if so, how?
As I said, I am fully aware of the fact that online threats are getting totally out of control, especially when you consider that the virus we caught last week was the result of my wife trying to found out how to make a TEAPOT!!!
But I would still like the choice of whether autoplay runs or not on my system.
Thank you in advance for any help or advice you could give me.
I am running Windows XP SP3 Home Edition
