Turnoff Autoplay in Windows 7

There are times when it’s super convenient to have Windows automatically do something when you insert some media or a device into your PC, such as when you insert a DVD and it starts playing.  There are times when it’s not, here’s the easy way to stop it for specific devices (or media) in just 2 steps…

  • Insert the device or media and the AutoPlay popup will appear, at the bottom is the magic option View more AutoPlay options in Control Panel.  Select this.

turn off autorun 1


  • Next you’ll be given the same option for every type of media you can play on your machine and for all the devices that you currently have attached.  Change this to Take no action from Ask me every time (1 in the screenshot below) to make Windows 7 ignore the device from the point of view of doing something automatic with it.  (iTunes will still start with your iPod because it’s not actually Windows that makes that decision, there’s a program running in the background that watches for your iPod).  Click the Save button to save and activate the setting, and you can test it by disconnecting your device and adding it again.

turn off autorun 2


If you do the same thing with the memory card for your camera every time you insert it you can also change the option to Import pictures and video using Windows to automatically bring everything into your Pictures library

Pushing the Limits of Windows: Handles

This is the fifth post of the “Pushing the Limits of Windows” series in Mark’s blog, where he focuses on the upper bound on the number and size of resources that Windows manages, such as physical memory, virtual memory, processes and threads:

  1. Pushing the Limits of Windows: Physical Memory
  2. Pushing the Limits of Windows: Virtual Memory
  3. Pushing the Limits of Windows: Paged and Nonpaged Pool
  4. Pushing the Limits of Windows: Processes and Threads

In this post, he goes inside the implementation of handles to find and explain their limits. Handles are data structures that represent open instances of basic operating system objects applications interact with, such as files, registry keys, synchronization primitives, and shared memory. There are two limits related to the number of handles a process can create: the maximum number of handles the system sets for a process and the amount of memory available to store the handles and the objects the application is referencing with its handles.

In most cases the limits on handles are far beyond what typical applications or a system ever use. However, applications not designed with the limits in mind may push them in ways their developers don’t anticipate. A more common class of problems arise because the lifetime of these resources must be managed by applications and, just like for virtual memory, resource lifetime management management is challenging even for the best developers. An application that fails to release unneeded resources causes a leak of the resource that can ultimately cause a limit to be hit, resulting in bizarre and difficult to diagnose behaviors for the application, other applications or the system in general.
