How to Turn Off Autorun in Windows XP

Whenever we insert a media into the drive, Windows automatically starts reading it. This is because of the AutoPlay function. AutoPlay is enabled for removable drives with Windows XP SP2 and later editions of Windows. Even the ZIP drives and some USB mass storage devices also automatically run when connected to computer. Do you want to turn off Autorun option in Windows XP?
Do the following:
1. Click on Start button in Windows and open the Run dialogue box.

2. Write gpedit.msc in the search box.

3. You will find Administrative Templates under Computer Configuration.

4. Expand Administrative Templates.

5. Click on System.

6. You will find Turn Off Autoplay on the right hand pane.

7. Double click on Turn Off Autoplay option.

8. Under Turn Off Autoplay properties select the Enabled option and select the drive that you want to Turn off autoplay.

9. Click on Apply and Ok.

If you need technical support in this regard, talk to a PC expert.
