Win-Xp Cd-rom help
I have windows xp and I can't access my cd drives. when I try to run a program from the Cd Drive my computer freezes

but they work in safe mode, I can't figure out why...

If no one can help me, can some point me to a good tech forum.

Have you done a virus scan lately?

If they work in safe-mode, then that tells me that something isn't loading to stop the CD-Rom working. If you have done a virus scan lately, then re-boot and boot with verbose mode. Verbose Mode will go through and print everything to the screen that loads, you have to press "y" or "n" to let it load.

How long have you been having the problem? Have you installed anything recently ? Have you tried system restore ?

Ive tried Running an up-to-date Virus Scan but it didn't seem to find anything... what is a good free virus scanner. Anyone have any other ideas?
