Watch out for this (optional) update

It disables your USB devices under Autoplay/Autorun and limits device sensing to optical drives only

This update disables AutoRun entries in AutoPlay, and displays only entries that are populated from CD and DVD drives. Effectively, this prevents AutoPlay from working with USB media.

Works fine with USB flash drives. I usually open a flash drive to run whatever anyway

It doesn't stop your USB device working, it just stops it using autoplay...

... which is a good security feature, given the likes of Conficker which spread far and wide via USB drives, thanks to the autorun 'feature'.

Good riddance to Auto Run.
