    after getting the 2.2 ota, whenever i plug my phone in to my computer it will have the popup say there is software available to use, do you want to install it? and at the same time brings my web browser to a verizon website. i don't see any option for disabling this. is there something i'm missing?

    No need to root. Just follw the instructions below. It worked for me.

    Dial ##7764726
    Hit Call
    Type Password is 000000
    Hit Feature Settings
    Choose CD ROM
    Click Disable
    Hit menu, commit modifications (it will say no item changed)
    Back out to home

    Thank You SOOO much! That thing was really starting to piss me off. I thought I would just have to live with it. Now I don't have that problem anymore. I love this forum!

    Its a shame google is allowing carries to put this kind of garbage on the device, especially the bloatware that we cant uninstall. Makes me angry

    I realize this is an old post, but I just tried this on my Droid X and no joy, it doesn't contain a menu item called Feature settings

    Really?!?! You followed the instructions exactly? Dialed the numbers correctly? The way i understand it is this is a verizon thing, not specific to any phone, huh.

    Feel free to start a thread in droid X section and ask about it. Someone over there might know the answer.....

    For the X:

    1. On your computer, open Control Panel.
    2. Go to Administrative Tools.
    3. Select Services.
    4. Right-click Moto Connect Service and select Properties.
    5. Click Stop.
    6. Change the Startup Type option to Disabled.
