Okay, remove the update or program you have recently installed through Add/Remove.

If you can't find it, run the system restore. Look for the date before it happened.

If you are willing to format and reinstall windows and the cdrom doesn't work. It means your cdrom cable is loose or defective or the cdrom itself is dying. See to it to set the cdrom as first boot in the bios.
