Windows 10: External Drive Dialog Boxes Open on Every Reboot

    External Drive Dialog Boxes Open on Every Reboot


    Title kind of says it all. Every time my computer reboots, some or all of the dialog boxes for my external drives open on the desktop. I am just wondering if this is an indication of something more serious going on or should I just forget it?

    I've attached a screed shot.

    Thanks.

    hi, I would go to auto play in control panel and turn off auto play for all media and devices , besides its a good for security reasons to set it to off ...,see what happens

    Thank you for the suggestion. I went and changed it to take no action for removable drives. If i turn off auto play across the board, when I try to play something and forget I changed it here, I will be back here asking why nothing plays!! I will see how that works, though. Thanks again.
