My system loads and gets to the desktop and then it reboots automatically. When I disconnect my CD drive everything runs fine. I ran ERD Commander and it told me this was the file causing the problem. Not sure what to do with it though. Any thoughts?

@Big Red: you could uninstall roxio (control panel- add or remove programs) and if you have trouble with that you can always look up "RoxioZap" on google, that should get rid of it for you.
