Scan USB Drives Using Microsoft Security Essentials via the AutoPlay Dialog

We’d like to share with you an interesting registry hack that adds a Microsoft Security Essentials AutoPlay handler so that you can thoroughly scan a CD/DVD media or USB flash drive for viruses, via the AutoPlay dialog. See article Scan Your Thumb Drive for Viruses from the AutoPlay Dialog at the How-To Geek website.

Thanks to Lowell & Brian for publishing my tip/script idea at How-To Geek. Also, this was later featured at Lifehacker.
