Re: Windows no longer brings up the "Open With" window.



You may use this utility in the following situations

1. A junk entry appears in the Auto-play window, sub-titled as <need
provider> ( Fig 1)
2. Select an action to perform box is completely blank for an Event (Fig 2)
3. To remove unwanted entries from the AutoPlay window.

When I insert a music CD or DVD-R/RW or a movie DVD, or a CD-R/RW, windows
does not give me a choice for what program I want to run to use the recently
inserted disc. Game CD's do Auto Start properly though. When I insert the
above mentioned discs, Windows Explorer just opens to display the contents

or DVD drive, and then select the "AutoPlay" tab, no matter what I choose
the content type, the "select an action to perform" list is completely

I want Windows XP Home Edition SP2 to bring up the "Open With" window like
it used to when I insert these disks.
Thanx for your time and help!
