Also most importantly use the tool (hijackthis) that I have given in my first comment.. it would give you a log file.
Post the log file here and experts would help you better to know which registry entry to delete

The add actually links to a Mcafee product where they are trying to sell you something.

Now, in regards to the CDROM eject trick, that is just part of the Mcafee "you are not secure so you need our security product" sales pitch. Scare the user by opening his CDROM door, and show them their WONDERFUL security product that will prevent these type of things from happening.

 There is a VBSCRIPT Function in the webpage called "Function OpenCDs" that is calling a Windows Media Player .OCX file, and causing it to eject CDROM door if possible. I would post the script here, but then it might just start opening CDROM doors for people looking at this question and they might freak out!

So, no virus, no spyware, no malware, just Mcafee being cute!

On my XP laptop, the CDROM trick did NOT work, and that is probably because I am up-to-date on my WinXP OS patches, IE patches, and Windows Media Player patches.

So, I bet if you went to the Windows Update website and got all Critical and most of the recommended patches, THEN went back to the webpage again, the CDROM door would not open.
