You aren't being pranked are you? – Roney Michael Dec 13 '13 at 7:44

I had a similar problem with a Dell laptop, which was caused by some hardware (really physical) problem, since the drive opened when I put some pressure on the left part of the laptop, just on top of drive's position.

Do your drive open even when you are not touching or moving it?

You might try running a Ubuntu live-cd (no installation) for some hours to check if the same happens, and discard (or not) a hardware problem.

I've heard of a virus that does this. Try updating your antivirus databases. Either that or your being pranked. My memory is a little foggy. I think there is a VBScript that makes this happen.

Try the following path:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
