Disable auto-run to protect against worm

Security experts are advising Windows users to disable the auto-run function. The reason is because the Conficker worm can infect a PC through a USB drive or other USB device including, for example, an electronic picture frame.

Disabling it in Vista is quite easy if you follow these instructions.

With Windows XP, it’s a bit more complicated so you might want to get some help if you’re not technically inclined.
