No Virus?


Recommended Posts

I've used your software atleast 3 times just to make sure I have no viruses, but I still think I have one. My CDrom icon pops up on my cursor like I just inserted a CD when I actually haven't. It does it like every 5 seconds and I have absolutely no clue why. Could your software be missing something? :)

Welcome Rhea -

There may be also a hardware problem involving your CD player -

If you are conversant with your unit , can you open BIOS and (for now) set your CD player to the bottom of the "start up list" -

Other wise we can tell you how to disable the unit so it will not show as operating -


Please follow the directions below from AdvancedSetup -
