Stop XP Automatic Search

By LibbyB ·
When I plug in a flash drive or double-click on my C drive I am automatically prompted with a "search" window instead of opening the specified drive.

I have already tried to specify the "autoplay" settings of the Flash drive to no avail.

If you have any ideas, please let me know. This is so annoying and I can't find any answers!
Thank You.

The context-menu handler will get knocked outby an application that adds to your right click menus.
It also wouldn't hurt to do a scan for malware.

You are replying to an OLD thread/post.

In addition, your instructions are just plain WRONG, or at the very minimum, INCOMPLETE.

Next time you create a new account just to post your 'advice', make sure that advice is CORRECT.
