Something is trying to run a program using pointing to a CD file.

This is usually found in the Registry's RunOnce entries.

Try this:
  1. FIRST: Right-click My Computer, select Manage, expand [+] Event Viewer, look at each log for an error entry and double-click it to see details, use info to fix.
  2. OR: Open Regedit ([Start] menu, Run, type regedit)...
  3. ...use File, Export option, to backup your Registry...
  4. ...use Edit menu, Find, and enter RunOnce in the search field, [OK]....
  5. ...look for an entry in every RunOnce found (you may have to expand [+] the entry) and find the specific entry line that calls the file or a program that may be looking for the file and click it to select....
  6. ...delete [Del] just the erroneous entry...
  7. ...you should use [F3] to continue search until end, to make sure the entry is not anywhere else.
