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.
