When I close Windows XP Pro, my CD Rom drive opens upon shutdown? I recently
upgrade to Windows XP Pro, and never had this issue before. I have SP2
installed. Any ideas what might be causing this?

Thank you,

It's easy enough to open the cd from an exe or script file. You may have something running that does that. For example:

--HaveACup.VBS--
Set oWMP = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX.7" )
Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection
if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then
For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count - 1
colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject
Next ' cdrom
--cut--

Go to Start/Run, and type MSCONFIG then look at the STARTUP TAB, to uncheck unwanted, checked items
