So... Microsoft products are easy to use, and Linux/Unix is hard ?

(if you can't see what's so hilarious about the following, then you've already been subsumed.)

If you'd rather that Autoplaying CDs didn't, you can turn off the
Autoplay facility by changing a setting in the registry. Using REGEDT32,
navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Cdrom.
Here you will find an entry called Autorun. Edit the entry by
double-clicking on it and then changing the dat a field from 1 to 0. You
will need to re-boot for the change to take effect. After you have made
the change, if you do want a CD to Autoplay, you can double-click on
the CD icon in Explorer or My Computer. The Autoplay will then run as if
you had just put the CD in.
