I think you may have been infected by what was once a simple worm which disables that option so to hide itself.
==Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
from: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_d5756.html
or: http://www.besttechie.net/tools/mbam-setup.exe
=Dclick that file, mbam-setup.exe, to install the application,
-ensure that it is set to update and start, else start it via the icon.
Select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan; the application will guide you through the remaining steps.
ENSURE that EVERYTHING found has a CHECKMARK against it, then click Remove Selected.
If malware has been found [and removed] MBAM will automatically produce a log for you... do not click the Save Logfile button.
When it completes examine the log: if some files are listed as Delete on Reboot then restart your machine before continuing.
Post the Notepad log [it is also saved under Logs tab in MBAM].
Check the results.... if MBAM does not detect and delete autorun.inf then please...

Is it XP home or pro?

In xp pro you can toggle it using Group Policy, xp home requires a registry hack.

Okay, moved to the malware board. Sounds like the malware is interfrering with the registry/policy settings.

Gautam, I need to see that MBAM log, please... [it is saved under Logs tab in Program Files\MBAM].
also:
==download hijackthis: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download5554.html
-copy it to a new FOLDER placed either alongside your program files or on your desktop and then... rename hijackthis.exe to imabunny.exe
-in that folder start HijackThis by dclicking the .exe; now close ALL other applications and any open windows including the explorer window containing HijackThis.
-click the Scan and Save a Logfile button. Post the log here.
Post both logs, please. I am blind without them.
Did you try the Bitdefender online scan? Post that log also... that scan will remove your autorun.inf trojan if that is what you have.
