Hello when i insert a CD they will not auto run. When i right click on the CD Drive in My Computer there is no option to choose autorun. Yes the CD'S im useing are sussposed to auto play most are games that usually run but now they don't. Oh and please suggest else something before i do scanreg/restore. Lasttime i did scanreg/restore i lost some important files.

Open device manager (right click on 'my computer' and choose 'properties'), open CDROM and double click on your cdrom. Choose 'settings'. Make sure 'auto insert notification' is checked.

Your experience with scanreg /restore is more than a bit unusal as it should not touch any files except user.dat and system.dat (the registry). There must have been some other problem on your machine that caused this, or caused scanreg/restore to provoke it.

I wouldn't let your one experience mean that you see scanreg /restore as a "big bad wolf" forever more.

Thats it i was afraid to do scanreg/restore becaus eits its been 3 years scence the computer was turned on. Also Windows Me was installed a month after it was purchased so just didn't know how scanreg/restore would turn out with it being that long.

What do i put here if i don't put a question?
