Still this represents a good step for Microsoft to be able to help protect its users even more.

I dunno if I'm one of the few paranoids, but I disable auto-run on everything, as to know that I can scan and inspect the contents of any CD, DVD or flash drive prior to allowing to to execute itself.

I fucking hate U3!

It probably goes without saying, but I had to.

 Also, I am using chrome, and I love it, its fast, and I really like how It gives me my 9 most visited web pages at the home screen, and when I type in the address bar it knows to just google it, and It had porn mode before everyone else. I hate how when ever I sign on to MPC to post a comment, It says "O snap this page can't be loaded" WTF

 

And dont tell me to just use firefox, it takes about 20 years to start, even the latest version, even after a clean install of the os.

Just a couple seconds for me.

yeah, I still have it installed, and it only takes a few seconds after it has already been launched, Its the initial start that takes forever. I admit it has gotten better in the last version, but chrome still beats it.

I disable auto-run for pretty much everything all ready.
