CD tray keeps on opening and closing? Do you have Norton 360?

If you just experience the feeling that your computer has been possessed and you have Norton 360 installed in your computer-don’t worry! (I hope!)

I was trying to be calm when the cd tray keep on opening and closing on me as soon as I turn on my computer.  First thought that always comes to my mind is that my computer has a virus/malware/trojan horse and all the other freaking bastard made program that makes all our lives miserable but anti-virus company richer. (conspiracy theory?)

Anyways, do some reality check first;

– did Norton 360 previous told you that you don’t have enough storage on your online backup?

-did you take the initiative to play smart and change the setting to backup into cd/dvd?

-did you finish backing up on cd/dvd and felt empowered and went on with your merry life?

now, if all those statements are true, except the merry life part, and after a few hours or days your cd/dvd drive starting opening and closing then do this;

– deselect all item that needs to be backed-up and just select the smallest one (Internet Favorites)
– change the backup to manual
– save settings
– restart machine

if the cd tray still keeps on opening and closing put a blank cd disc in and close the drive (or play grasshopper-pebble game with the cd tray) and wait until it writes something.

If all goes well the ghost in your machine will disappear!  If not – get someone else to help you with the exorcist
