Dell DVD Sentry

This program prevents DVD's from autorunning. Upon insertion of a dvd, I checked the "Do not ask me again" as well as the "Use Dell Software" aka PowerDVD to play dvds. I must have checked the wrong thing "Do not use dell software" instead because now dvds autorun their own annoying little installs. I want dsentry.exe in my startup to do what it used to. However, I can't find any way in the GUI to do this. Along these lines, I was hoping that someone with a Dell would be able to search through their registry and provide me with values for DVD sentry related keys. Thanks! I'm welcome to any other suggestions as well. I would uninstall/reinstall DVD sentry but I can't find an install for it anywhere!
