Before you go editing the registry, you might try using the group policy editor first...

Also, this probably should go in the Software forum, rather than the Programming forum.

I have win7. home premiume 64 Bit it does not come with gpedit.msc

So tell me if I would be doing this right
First off unplug all useb devices.

1. make restore point.
2. type regedit in the run Box
4. right click on explore and click new then click Dword32 Bit.
5. on the right side of windows give it the name of nodrivetypeautorun
6. give the value of 0x00000091
7. reboot.

Is every little thing I say right?

Yes Group Policy Editor (gpedit) is not availabe in Win 7 Home Premium, its only available in Entrerprise, Business or Ultimate versions as a Home user should never need to enter group policy as there is nothing they should need to enable or disable in that area.

Autoplay/run is a security nightmare and Windows versions have been disabling this with updates over the past year or so for versions that had this enabled as Autoplay will allow malware to run automatically, so personally I would never enable autorun/play at all.

I was convinced the hex for the Dword value was 0x91 only.

But can you not enable Autoplay via the Control Panel and this location Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\AutoPlay (just type autoplay into the Start Search box) then choose your options per remove device.
