Editors' Review

Uninstalling media players can leave invalid Autoplay entries in your Registry that repeatedly prompt you to use programs that you've already attempted to get rid of. Autoplay Repair is a utility that can display these invalid entries and let users delete them for good. Although we like the idea of the program, it's not necessarily easy to use.

The program's interface is plain and doesn't offer a lot of direction for new users. A tabbed Autoplay Manager screen lets users view the installed Autoplay handlers for audio and video files, audio CDs, DVDs, blank discs, images, and mixed content. Users can modify, remove, and erase handlers from each of these manually. The program also has a tool that lets users disable Autoplay entirely for specific drives. All of this was fairly intuitive, but the autorun cleanup didn't make a whole lot of sense; it displayed a list of Registry entries with check boxes next to them, and the only instructions were to "use drag and drop to add new entries into different sections." We did like the fact that Autoplay Repair can create a backup before you go tinkering with your Registry entries, which is always a good idea, but the complete lack of instruction or documentation is problematic for users who haven't used this kind of software before. Overall, we think that Autoplay Repair can be a useful tool for those who are being bugged by invalid Autoplay entries, but it needs to be used with caution.

Autoplay Repair installs and uninstalls without issues.
