The cd door keeps opening and closing. If I restart the computer,
it does stop for awhile. It appears that an AutoPlay function is being
called, but I can't find what is calling it. I have gone into Task Manager
while it is happening and there are no applications shown and none of
the processes seem to be active except TaskMgr.

I did a repair of operating system, have ran many
anti-virus programs (zero viruses) and spyware programs
(zero spyware) and cleaned the registry. I can't find
what is causing it.

Any suggestions??

Many Thanks!!!!

By the way, the cd-r/w is a Philips CDD4851

Try running your anti-spyware/antivirus software prog in safe mode. Top
of my head, it sounds like the Joke/Chospe [Panda] is running

Thanks Graham,
That was my first thought too. If so, someone has found a much better
way to hide it.

Thanks Graham, that did the trick although the puter is still running too
slowly so I am going to format and reinstall anyway. But thanks again for
the fix. I was able to find and fix the thing that was causing the
problem.
Spysweeper and counterspy both found it. It had a different name like
funwebproducts.

Do you have any cd/dvd burning software installed? That's the only
software I can readily think of that opens & closes the tray, though
usually only when you're burning discs!

Is the tray retracting fully and closing properly? Sometimes if there's
an obstruction then it will re-open on closing.

If possible, try another drive in the PC, then you'll know if it's
software to blame, or just a hardware fault with an old drive.

Great idea!!! I will do that if the spyware that I removed in safemode
didn't fix it. Thanks!!!

It may be that the rubber drive belt is slipping and preventing the
tray from hitting the end stop. The greatest resistance to movement
would occur during disc clamping which happens just after the door has
closed. Resetting the PC may temporarily reset the processor inside
the CD drive. You can verify whether or not software is causing your
problem by disconnecting the IDE ribbon cable and allowing the CD to
close under its own control.
