Restore Autorun Script

  • Generic Company Place Holder Restore Autorun Script

Disabling the Windows XP Autorun feature using our downloadable custom script can help protect you from worms and other malware. But if you've run into any problems from doing so, you can reverse the changes by downloading and double-clicking this restoration script.

Both the disable and re-enable scripts automate steps suggested by Nick Brown--and further recommended by the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT)--to improve security on a Windows XP computer.

To use it, unzip the download and double-click the RestoreAutorun.reg script.
