Ticked off

Every time I put an audio CD in my PC's CD drive, I get the following message:

Windows can perform the same action every time you insert a disk or connect a device with this kind of file...

It has taken me several months of annoyance -- firmly selecting the sensible option and ticking the "Always do the selected action" tickybox, and then next time being irritated all over again by the reappearance of the message -- to come to the conclusion that what it means when it says "Windows can perform the same action every time..." is that it can display this dialog box every time, regardless of whether or not I have ticked the tickybox.
