Changing Windows Autoplay settings without my permission (repeatedly)

Changing Windows Autoplay settings without my permission (repeatedly)

Hi, I have the same problem as the OP @mr-stem below:

https://www.dropboxforum.com/t5/Dropbox-installs-integrations/Changing-Windows-Autoplay-settings-wit...

 

Sad to see the problem persist and no action being taken. I am on version 121. (it originally happened on version 101!!!)

Hi @Nein999, I have not managed to resolve this issue, and it still bugs me repeatedly.  To me, it is unfathomable that Dropbox should ever mess with my AutoPlay settings, let alone do so pathologically.  Since my original post, I have kept a list of the times I have had to undo this DropBox setting, as copied below.  I haven't made it to v121 yet, but I know what is likely to happen when I do.  I have even considered writing a script to routinely fix the compromised registry settings, but frankly I have better things to do.  Hopefully your post will remind the developer to do somethng about this.  Good luck us!
