Microsoft released a patch to correct the "disable autorun registry key" enforcement.

The details can be found at this link:

This patch is in response to the Jan. 20 US Cert advisory that Microsoft Windows does not disable AutoRun properly.

The Conficker worm spreads via autorun and many other pieces of malware spread via autorun. Disabling autorun is a first line of defense against these sorts of attacks.
