Help: Windows Explorer-AutoPlay-Closing of Window

As you may have noticed, hard not to, but if when in windows explorer (WE) and you have selected a removable entitiy (cd, dvd, CF card, etc) and you 'eject' or remove it, the windows explorer window closes.

I assume this is the '***-end' of AutoPlay (autoplay automagically opens WE (it did not) but closes WE (because it is stupid) ). Well, I hate AutoPlay, have it turned off completely.

But still, upon 'ejection/removal' WE closes if that drive/device is selected.


Anyone know how to 'turn this off' such that WE does NOT close in this scenario??
