I have just encountered a problem whereby my cd drive will only play music cd's,but as soon as I put in a software disc of any sort the whole computer freezes solid and I have to reboot it again before anything works.

Perhaps if you remove it via the device manager, it will sort itself out on reboot... If not, try a thread in the helproom where more people are likely to see it and respond.

This should be poated in the helproom section not consumer watch. Hopefully you'll get more response there.

Yes.Did not realise I was in Consumerwatch.Tried the above suggestion but it did not make any difference.Thanks for the reply,though.I will close the post for now as I am off on holiday in the morning.

I have cured the problem by removing Avast.

I hope you have installed another virus checker in it's place Such as AVG Free
