Autorun question


P

Panic

Is there a way to select autorun on or off for specific externals? I have a
USB flash drive that I keep plugged in to back up my Quicken data on. I
would prefer it not to autorun. I have a USB hard drive with an automatic
backup program for my internal hard drive that I do want to autorun. Is
there a way to do this?

Whoops. I guess I mean autoplay rather than autorun.

Click the Start orb, type autoplay in the search box, enter.

Open control panel then click open "auto play".
With your flash drive inserted, check the "devices" list.

I have turned mine turned off completely.

OK. Devices was off screen bottom so I scrolled down and found it but no
devices were shown in the area that says devices that you connect to your
computer will be shown here. I have my flash drive, my USB drive, a USB
Scanner, and a USB DVD recorder all hooked up and powered. Is there
something else I need to do to have them listed?

You might have to have the first checkbox checked on to show the devices.
if it is, I'm not sure how to help on that.

Please fix your quoting style. When you use that idiosyncratic
technique, and someone else follows up on it, it looks like you said
what you actually only quoted.

I'm aware that the recent updates to Windows Live Mail broke your
quoting style. Unfortunately that poses a painful choice to you:
either fix every quote manually, or get a real newsreader such as
Gravity or Forte Agent (to mention the two that come to mind at the
moment).

Thanks for your consideration!

Perhaps that is a problem with YOUR client.
His reply appears properly on my end.

Nope, the post in question doesn't appear properly on any end, even
yours. That's why you see recommendations and requests about dumping
WLM 15. It's badly broken.
