Am I being hacked?!

I was browsing the web yesterday when suddenly both my CD and DVD drives opened by themselves. I read somewhere that this is a sign that a hacker has control of my PC - is this true? If so, what can I do about it? I've got McAfee Firewall and antivirus software so I thought I'd be protected.

I may be worrying unnecessarily, and it hasn't happened again since, but if anyone can offer any sensible advice I'd be grateful.

Cheers,
PD

This is just one possibility out of many, probably a complete red herring but easy enough to check.
