You can run into issues when autorun is removed. Combofix also removes autorun and some OP's want it back.

When they insert their CD or whatever, they want it to autorun / autoplay.

When you're working one on one with the OP it isn't that big of an issue but if MBAM removes it I think you'll have alot of unhappy users of MBAM

I guess that was one of the reason's the bad guys infected autorun.
