    Hi all,
    I have looked and looked and I guess I'm not entirely sure what to call it so I'll try here.
    Whenever I plug my DINC into the usb on my laptop there is an auto run file that launches my browser on my computer and opens a verizon web page for their media manager thing that I don't use or want.
    What and where is that file?
    I just can't seem to be able to find it.
    I have a rooted Inc and have been using root explorer to wash out all the unwanted stuff but can't seem to get this one.
    If this has already been asked, sorry for the repeat. Like I said I caouldn't find the topic.

    Thanks

    _TX_

    Another way is to flash a nice ROM that doesn't have any of that stuff on it.

    It's not propaganda:) Theres no secret/political/etc. message they are trying to pass off on you. It's to install drivers and such for the phone on your PC. Commander24's tip should work fine for getting rid of it though, if you already have a working driver on your computer for the phone.

    Same problem, but not rooted and ##7764726 does not work. Other suggestions?

    I know you've got the problem fixed, but if you're already rooted you can just delete "/system/etc/CDROM.ISO" and that will get rid of any autorun crap too.

    I have the same problem and I don't have call confirm, yet dialing ##PROGRAM and hitting Call does nothing. Any other ideas of what to try?
