Everytime I put a Software CD into either drive on my computer, I get a window as follows:

The title of the Window reads ( Autorun.ico - Window Live Photo Gallery)


The only thing that is in the body of the window is a very small picture of the Icon.


The software will not run automatically, you have to go to computer and select the drive and right click

on it to Open and physically click on the .exe file.


All my other CD except the installation ones, that I guess have a .ico file somewhere in it, will auto run



Does anyone have any idea what is wrong?

See if this matches your symptoms.

The AutoRun feature or the AutoPlay feature does not work when you insert a CD-ROM in the CD drive.



I personally, would look for defaults (File type & Program defaults) that have changed & your AutoPlay settings for your media.
