    auto restart on error?

    its quite simple really

    go to your control panel and then to system...

    select the advanced tab and then select start-up recovery options settings ....

    within this window you will see an option halfway down which has the heading system failure and here you will uncheck the box that says automatically restart... if it has a check mark in it...

    "Turn Off Autoplay For CDs

    Click Start , click Run , type regedit in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
    Locate and click the following registry key:
    -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.
    (NOTE : This method disables automatically running CD-ROMs.
    If you want to disable automatically running CD-ROMs depending on the CD-ROM that you insert in the CD-ROM drive, you can press and hold down one of the SHIFT key while you insert the CD-ROM."
