Many computers already have this as installed - It just means your CD player recognises the CD and starts it -

Just do not use the registry cleaner section of the program -

Hi mbam daz.

CD Autorun is just a convenient tool under tweek now that blocks cd/dvd's from automatically running once inserted. You can also turn it off under control panel AutoPlay. Worms like Conficker or other malware often use autorun to infect other computers by usage of media(flash drives, cd's etc).
