Forgive my ignorance but what other autorun functionality is there besides for CD-ROM?
1) Set CMOS so system only boots from a hard drive.
2)Allocate the CD-ROM and Floppy drive at login time. No process or application is supposed to be able to use them, since the user now "owns" it.
3) Defeat autorun on the CD:
Does this approach what you are looking for?

I am trying to completely remove autorun functionality from an NT 4.0 SP6a
I have added the following registry value to do this:
Class Name: <NO CLASS>
Last Write Time: 9/5/00 - 10:34 AM
HKCU (for existing users) contains the same key, and has a data value that
does allow some autorun functionality (0x95). It appears that the setting in
HKLM is taking precedence over the setting in KKCU, which is what I want.
I'm interested in comments on any potential problems I might experience if I
set this data value in HKLM and have a different setting in HKCU. I am also
open to suggestions on other methods of completely removing all autorun
functionality (preventing it on the CDROM drive is not enough).
