This could be a problem of your source (in this case the cd-rw I believe).

Happens mostly when CD's are written at higher rates than they are made to support. The slower the burn rate, the more reliable the resulting CD is.

Is there another other device on the bus?
if so as a test have just the CD drive on the bus.
Escpecially if the CD drive shares the bus with a hard drive I've seen problems.

one thing to try is

i  had some sucess in getting to save some files from my burned cds.

also note , that virus that you mention did not come from windows update , what happens is that
your  system was infected with a virus and then it contaminates the windows update shortcut
so that you get sent to a fake update site or redirects a protion of itself to download another virus

i know this for a fact , because i found know applications that i did not intall in adware logs,
i right clicked windows update and found the shortcut pointing to another site , ur using
a specific command to spread.
