Hello Scott, Automatic updates offered me KB971029 today, and seems to block Autoruns except for Optical Discs, yet things like security software on USB drives, HSDPA modems have auto-install methods on them!

I know that some USB devices with auto-run software emulate a ODD, so would they be affected?

Thanks, David

p.s Any books nearing print?! :)

If you read the update, you'll see your question is answered:

    "Some USB flash drives have firmware that present these USB flash drives as CD drives when you insert them into computers. These USB flash drives are not affected by this update."

Not yet, but I'll definitely post when I have some news... Scott.
