Autoplay Window keeps appearing


Recommended Posts

I have just had a message come up on my screen to say updates have been made and I need to restart. I have done this but now every ten seconds a window appears on the screen then disappears a couple of seconds later. It says 'Autoplay' and has a picture of a torch along with a status bar with green dots flashing across it. There is a cancel button which I have clicked but it re-appears whether or not I click it.


It's not slowing anything down but it's a little bit annoying, as you can imagine.


Does anyone know how to get rid of it? Other than throwing my monitor out of the window, which I have already considered.

I've not heard this one before - very strange!


What have you got in your optical drives?

Have you any USB devices plugged in like a camera, memory stick or mp3 player?


Run Ccleaner on the registry, and use ccleaner to clean out the junk.

Empty you optical drives, unplug said USB devices and restart.

Yea, have you had an error with your CD-ROM/DVD-ROM? Thats the only thing i can think of. Other than that try your system error logs and google the error codes?
