My cd/dvd drive (E) is opening and closing without being opened? Why is this happening? Is the driver corrupted?

it happens...

Odds are, is that the drive is probably kinda old... Eventually the sensors in the CD/DVD ROMs start to fail... and this is usually the result. It has happened to me a couple times.
the only fix is to get a new drive.

Or if your siting in a domain environment, a sysadmin could be messing with you (highly doubt it)...

You could try another drive letter....

Try another drive letter to see if it rectifies your problem.
Go to "computer management > disk management" and right click your removable "E" drive and select "properties > change drive letter" and choose another letter for your drive. Hopefully this should get it back to normal.
You might need to re-boot your system for the change to take place.
Hope all goes well.
