CD Writer Tray Opens and Closes Randomly

I have a Phillips CD writer on my Windows ME system that has recently started repeatedly opening and closing when not in use. This appears to happen randomly whatever I am doing and can only be stopped by switching off the PC. Can anyone help?

Could be Spyware/virus related, do you have eject shortcuts on your keyboard,they could be stuck, it may also be bad sensors in the drive itself
