Does any one know a good program to "autorun" from USB drive on a
windows 2000 or an XP machine? I have tried the traditional
Autorun.inf but didn't have any luck.

Ye Gods! Doesn't this make anyone even a little nervous? Autorun from a
CD drive is bad enough, dontcha think? Being able to walk up to a
machine and stick that in the port and autoinfect, or worse autocopy,
seems to be a huge risk to me.

I can see it now - someone on the night cleaning crew walks into the
CFO's office, sticks that thing into the front USB port on her PC, and
walks away with the My Documents folder. No muss, no fuss, no need to
even turn on the monitor.
