Autoplay on USB card reader won't work - help!

Default Autoplay on USB card reader won't work - help!

I just built a computer and installed XP on it. At first, autoplay
would recognize the card reader when plugged into the USB port and
give me the choice to download pictures, print them, etc. After
installing and then uninstalling a piece of software that had the
ability to be an Autoplay event, now the USB card reader isn't
recognized all the time by Autoplay (see below).

I spent an hour Googling and found that Autoplay is a very common
headache for people. I tried autofix from MS. No dice. I tried
making sure the card reader was still enabled for downloading, etc. I
tried erasing autoplay handlers from the registry as recommended in a
few other places. Nothing has helped.

Here's a peculiarity: I have multiple users setup on this machine
under XP. The FIRST USER to login does not have autoplay working with
the card reader (EVER), but Autoplay works for ANY SUBESQUENT USER.
So, if I boot up and login Joe, Autoplay won't work for Joe. Leave
Joe logged in and login as Jane, and Autoplay works for Jane. But,
log both of them off, then log Jane in first again, and Autoplay is
busted for Jane. Login Joe while Jane is still logged in and again,
Autoplay works for Joe.

By the way: CD Autoplay still works all the time.

Anyone have any clue what might be going on here?

Thanks for trying, but as I said, I already tried MS's autofix.exe
("AutoPlay Repair Wizard"). I tried it several times to make sure I
had run it correctly. It did not fix my problem.

Anyone else? I've already wasted a few hours on this problem. I kept
hoping it would be an easy solution once I found out what to fix. My
next step is to start over and completely re-install XP. Since this
is a relatively fresh install and I have other computers to assist,
it's not that big of a deal, just a few more hours work. I've had to
install almost every other MS OS more than once to get it work so it's
really not that big a surprise.

I have a client who's suffering the same problem. Up until now, she's had
to use System Restore to re-enable AutoPlay (digital camera). She used
AutoFix.exe and says all is well currently. If that changes, I'll next
check her system for hijackwa

Run these tools in the following order with nothing else running in

1. CWShredder (fix all found)

2. Ad-Aware (fix all found)

3. Spybot (RTFM but generally fix everything in red)

Important: You *must* seek updates for Ad-Aware, Spybot, etc., before each

everything, 24/7. When all else fails, HijackThis

Also:

1. Download and run Stinger (http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/); then...

2. Update your virus definitions, enable Show Hidden Files

and follow all Removal steps.

Thanks for trying, but as I said, I already tried MS's autofix.exe
("AutoPlay Repair Wizard"). I tried it several times to make sure I
had run it correctly. It did not fix my problem.

Anyone else? I've already wasted a few hours on this problem. I kept
hoping it would be an easy solution once I found out what to fix. My
next step is to start over and completely re-install XP. Since this
is a relatively fresh install and I have other computers to assist,
it's not that big of a deal, just a few more hours work. I've had to
install almost every other MS OS more than once to get it work so it's
really not that big a surprise.

I just built a computer and installed XP on it. At first, autoplay
would recognize the card reader when plugged into the USB port and
give me the choice to download pictures, print them, etc. After
installing and then uninstalling a piece of software that had the
ability to be an Autoplay event, now the USB card reader isn't
recognized all the time by Autoplay (see below).

I spent an hour Googling and found that Autoplay is a very common
headache for people. I tried autofix from MS. No dice. I tried
making sure the card reader was still enabled for downloading, etc. I
tried erasing autoplay handlers from the registry as recommended in a
few other places. Nothing has helped.

Here's a peculiarity: I have multiple users setup on this machine
under XP. The FIRST USER to login does not have autoplay working with
the card reader (EVER), but Autoplay works for ANY SUBESQUENT USER.
So, if I boot up and login Joe, Autoplay won't work for Joe. Leave
Joe logged in and login as Jane, and Autoplay works for Jane. But,
log both of them off, then log Jane in first again, and Autoplay is
busted for Jane. Login Joe while Jane is still logged in and again,
Autoplay works for Joe.

By the way: CD Autoplay still works all the time.

Anyone have any clue what might be going on here?
