autoplay sequence

Help please,
Out of the blue I have an Autoplay box running all the time for no apparent reason.
ie a box with a flashing /searching torch. It is titled Autoplay and cancelling it or closing the box have no effect, it just keeps repeating itself every few seconds. I am writing this in between its bursts as I cannot acheive text while it is on screen.
There are no disks/cd/dvds in the drive and I have tried system restore to no avail.
Although a clue may be in that I had just reinstalled the my NIKON camera software from CD ?
Thanks

try Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up task manager, have a look what applications are running, click end task to stop the application searching for whatever file its looking for.

When you know what application is causing the problem either uninstall it or post back for further info.

Highside you say problem solved, what was the fix for the problem ? It helps people who look on this forum if you can post back and tell what was the solution, in case someone has the same problem.
