Make sure you have up to date anti-virus / anti-malware software installed on your PC and that it's definitions are fully up to date. If this is WinXP, try disabling the IMAPI cd burning service. (right click computer -> manage -> services -> services -> right click imapi cd burning service -> properties -> disable -> apply & ok) Can't find your answer ? Ask !
