My PC will not auto run any software from the CD F drive.
Audio CDs or CDs with new programs.
The only way to access them is via the Run Feature.
Can anyone help ?

Have you run the, sfc /scannow tool ?

You can check out the following at least to see what setting are enabled.If you change any make sure you back up reg.

There is no option to enable or disable automatically running CD-ROMs in the user interface. To enable or disable automatically running CD-ROMs, you must edit the registry.


Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
Locate and click the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CDRom

To disable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 0 (zero). To enable automatically running CD-ROMs, change the Autorun value to 1.
Restart your computer.
