CD Rom won't start
« on: December 15, 2005, 04:22:56 PM »
Hi,

I've got a problem with the autostrat option of my cd-rom. After I installed avast! it doesn't want to open automatically when I insert any cd. What's the case? I know that avast! is responsible because when I uninstalled it everything went ok. Now, when I installed it again, the proplem came back.

Is there a way to bring the autoplay function back?

Yours

avast doesn't have any blocking function and shouldn't have any effect on your CD Rom other than to scan content.

Have you had any other AV on your system prior avast?
What is you OS?
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.12.6044 (build 22.12.7758.768) UI 1.0.741/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

I also use Sygate Personal Firewall Pro. System Windows XP. No other antiviruses. Is it possible in anyway to bring the autoplay feature back?

Try this (Win XP, Help, search on autoplay):
Quote
To change how your computer handles multimedia content
Open My Computer.
Under Devices with Removable Storage, right-click the device you want, such as a digital camera or CD-ROM drive, and then click Properties.
On the AutoPlay tab, click the multimedia content type you want to change.
Under Actions, click the action you want Windows to perform when it detects the media type you selected.
