I would say that more than likely your CD-ROM has died. It's not uncommon. And is certainly one of the more favorable computer break-down scenarios.

To clarify though:

1. Does the system hang when you go to My Computer? With CD in drive or Without?

2. When it hangs at explorer, what happens if you eject the CD from the drive? Are you able to?

3. Are you on any kind of network in which you have mapped network drives? (Private/Home networks included)

If the problem appears to isolate itself to CD drive activity, I would unplug the CD drive and retest. If this fixes the problem then you simply need to replace your CD drive. Again this is a favorable scenario. Without being able to spend any time with it however I would hate to venture any more intrusive advice.
