Hi, first time poster here. Here is my problem. This comes and goes it seems. It was gone for quite awhile and now it is back and is really frustrating. I have Panda antivirus and run adaware and A2 often aswell. What happens is sometimes after the computer is on or sometimes right when you turn on the computer the cd drive will go psycho and go in and out back and forth several times. Also the light will stay on even after it is done and whenever you try to type in the address bar it will freeze for a little bit and often type in several of the last letters that I was typing. Any ideas on what I can do or what this is? Thanks

Is your computer sharing a network connection by any chance?

It sounds to me as if someone installed a remote desktop app as a prank.

How do I find that out? How do I get rid of it?

Install a firewall. It will report any traffic including the IP address of the offender. You will be able to simply block that IP if you wish. If it malware it will document any access to the internet it may try.

Firewalls (Run only one.)
Zone Alarm Free for Personal Use
SyGate Presonal Firewall 5.6 (I personally use)
OutPost Firewall Free
Jetico Personal Free
Kerio Free Personal Firewall
