    When you shouldn't have clicked OK . . .

    . . . and only then noticed the tick box that you didn't want to tick, is ticked I am forever telling people to read the dialogue boxes before clicking OK it's so embarrassing to do it myself.

    Now I have a piece of software starting whenever I put a CD into the drive. Is there a way to set it back to asking me what I want to do?

    Thanks

    Right-click the CD Drive and choose Properties, and I think you can do it from in there.

    Alternatively, uninstalling the software altogether should work.

    Erm not exactly though it is Nero - does that make a difference to what I have to do?

    I'll have a look at the CD drive properties tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed. I don't really want to have to uninstall I have too many other things to do.

    Thanks one and all.

    It was an example of a piece of software where you just Next>Next>Next install and it takes over, changes ALL your file extensions to open with its terrible programs.

    Update on this issue:
    I put "ask me . . . " into the drive properties - no effect the software still took over.

    I rolled the machine back to before I did the dastardly deed and now it is OK.

    Thanks
