  Unavalability of AutoRun in USB Devices
  The AutoRun feature in Windows allows installers and other programmes to automatically launch when a USB device is connected to a computer. Several malicious applications or computer viruses spread onto computers through this AutoRun functionality.
  Thus, to ensure a more secure computing environment, effective from Feb. 18, 2009, such Windows autorun capabilities are disabled in all computers that joined Windows AD.
