Thanks a ton virus making jerkwads! Another [usually] great feature ruined by your handiwork.

One small step in the right direction. Autoplay,Autorun was for lazy people and malware authors' favorite infection vectors. Nothing should Auto launch or install without giveing permision. IMHO

Linux Mint,AMD Athlon+ x2 5600,3 Gig ram,500 Gig HDD,ATI 1300 Video.

Can you still assign a custom icon with autorun.inf? Or is there another way to do it?

Please tell me this won't effect virtual drives?  Like daemon Tools?

Even though this is a huge bonus toward protecting ourselves from USB drives, you can still partition part of a USB drives into a CDFS format.  I do it on my U3 device.  This makes windows thinks the CDFS partition is an optical drive.  Its not perfect, but it helps alot.

Also, stop hiding file name extensions by default.  Bad practice!

That's sad, especially when there is a worm virus. Also, starting to not support the autorun.inf file sucks a lot! It won't open the AutoPlay window up!!!! Big Danny :))
