This could be a variety of things. Could be that your system is running low on memory, or you have too many processes open when windows starts. You can turn some off using MSCONFIG (start>Run>type MSconfig), and browsing to Startup tab. Now as far as the restarting, this could be spyware/virus activity. Might want to run a scan using www.superantispyware.com. ITs free to use. And the cd-rom drive, I have never trusted philips cdrw drives, unless they are extrenal. Could have just crapped out. Now let me take one guess as to the manufacturer of your PC....is it....EMACHINE?!!?!?!?! lol. If it is, you would be better off using it as a paperweight lol. Any je hews, please post your findings of turning off some startup programs (Uncesseary ones like msnmessanger), and running that scan.
