    Correct me if I am wrong, but here's how I understand it...

    If you disable the Autorun features of Windows before this said update, the Autorun feature might not be correctly applied (specifically referring to the registry key settings). You have to apply this update first before you can correctly disable the Autorun feature of windows.
