Update to the AutoPlay Functionality in Windows

This update disables AutoRun entries in AutoPlay, and displays only entries that are populated from CD and DVD drives. Effectively, this prevents AutoPlay from working with USB media.

Users who install this update will no longer receive a setup message that prompts them to install programs that are delivered by USB flash drives. Users will have to manually install the software.

    Yes, but this is only a recent update. There was an update to the default autorun behavior a couple of years ago and you could also change the NoDriveTypeAutoRun in HKLM reg key to 255 to disable all including CD/DVDs which is how I have mine.
