Disable windows 7 autoplay and scan and fix
This post teaches you how to disable the following dialogs:
Disable the scan and fix dialog and autoplay dialog
Getting rid of the dialogs is easy. Open the control panel and search for ‘service’.
Click ‘view local services’ and find: ‘Shell hardware Detection’.
WARNING! Change these Windows settings at your own risk!
Disable the service. Windows will ask if you want to stop the Windows Image Acuisition (WIA) service also. On my laptop this was no problem and I can still scan images form FSViewer and Photoshop.
