My CD Rom Tray keeps popping in and out and then an autoplay window with a flashlight and search bar comes up and I don't know why. The tray keeps going in and out as if possessed by something. Can someone help me? Is this a virus Norton doesn't see. I scan and scan and it keeps happening.???!?!?!?!?

There are gag programs out there that'd do this. Not sure if this is the case here though.
May try an online virus scanner or post a HijackThis log... hth

More than likely the cd unit bay needs to be cleaned.
It probably has dust, dirt, or similar blocking the little actuating lever inside, which will cause the tray to keep opening.
(Mine had a little spider trying to lay her eggs inside that caused me a similar problem. Show's you how often I'd used that device.)
The only easy day was yesterday.

I'm thinking it's a joke program too. I know there used to be a "cupholder.exe" file on kazaa that would open up your cd drive. I have actually used some of these by rjlsoftware on my friends. Open/Close CD is a possibility or maybe the Flatulator?. Usually doing something such as moving your mouse into the upper-left corner of your screen will close them. Also, try opening up task manager and look for strange programs that are running.

There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary notation, and those who do not.
