Source:In addition to the numerous security updates released on Patch Tuesday, Microsoft finally turned off AutoRun for Windows Vista and Windows XP. Now programs will not execute automatically when loaded from USB devices like external hard drives or flash drive sticks. This prevents disguised malware from automatically loading the AutoRun menu when the USB devices are attached. Unfortunately, this also affects legit programs stored on USB storage devices.
