Disable Autorun in Vista to Protect Against Malware Infections

anti-virus old school All recent versions of widows contain features called AutoPlay and AutoRun.

    In Memory of Our Honored Dead

     

    Memorial Day1

    The muffled drum’s sad roll has beat
    The soldier’s last tattoo’
    No more on life’s parade shall meet
    That brave and fallen few;
    On Fame’s eternal camping ground
    Their silent tents are spread;
    But Glory guards with solemn round
    The bivouac of the dead.

    By Theodore O’Hara, 1847
