How To Disable Autorun On Vista Home Premium

#Topics: disable autorun windows vista home premium

I’ve heard that its best to turn Autorun off these days to avoid spreading viruses such as Conficker that can hook into the Autorun on USB-sticks.

Although Microsoft have lots of advice on their website (e.g. kb967715) I’m having trouble doing it on Vista Home Premium because there are no Group Policy settings in that version of Vista.

Does anyone know a good way of doing this?

This article explains how to do it through a registry hack, or the control panel.
