Btw., in order to minimise risks while browsing & using the web, Firefox comes with Adblock Plus (with automated filter lists, so you don't have to do anything :)). There are like 4 main subscriptions needed, after installing the Adblock Plus Element Hiding Helper and these are: 1. EasyList (The main ad-blocker subscription), 2. EasyPrivacy (additional tracking & privacy invasion blocker), 3. Adult/Dating Blocking (for blocking adult and dating ads), 4. Rickroll Blacklist (by Jamie Wilkinson).
I am very much pro-Mozilla, pro-Firefox, but there are similar solutions for other browsers also. For example, one such solution for the Opera browser, which uses almost the same filters as the EasyList, is @ fanboy.co.nz/adblock/opera/

Fyi., the Shell Hardware Detection Service is in charge of AutoPlay, "Provides notifications for AutoPlay hardware events."
