    About a couple weeks ago my computer (Win XP) just stopped auto starting games/programs including auto transferring pic from my camera. I have search and searched for some auto start setting to reactivate but cant find anything.

    Anyone know whats wrong?

    Right click on the drive letter (including the USB removable drive that the system recognizes your camera as) and go to the "AutoPlay" tab. Set the appropriate actions. Installing some piece of hardware or software could have changed the default settings for these things. So could some adware, spyware and viruses, so updating your security software and running some scans probably couldn't hurt, either.

    Regards,
