    This is an annoying problem that does not seem to affect my computer in any way except my cursor "blinks" with the little CD icon about once per second. It happens randomly and sometimes last for days even with reboot. Sometimes logoff or reboot fixes the problem temporarily and sometimes not. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

    Thanks

    Something has to cause that CD ROM icon to appear near the mouse cursor. The things that trigger are:

    1. CD in cd drive.

    This happens with or without CD in drive. I have checked for running processes, spyware, viruses etc and still have no clue. Thanks for your response.

    It is more than likely a program that is trying to access the drive so let's try this:

    To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
    Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Open a TechSupportGuy forum Reply window for this thread, to have ready to paste the Hijackthis log into. Click once to place the typing cursor in the reply window.
    At the top of your TSG/browser window, hit Edit then Paste
    You should see your copied Hijackthis log appear in the reply space....then, submit the reply
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
