IMAPI CD Buring Service receiving routine (daily) service “on/off” commands

IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service
In review my "Events Log" under Computer Management (in Control Panel - Windows XP Home Edition) I have observed what are routine events (every 3 - 4 hours, 7/24) where there is a IMAPI CD-burning service "on" command followed just one or two minutes later by a second IMAPI CD-buring service "off" or termination command (not sure exact syntax). These commands for CD burning do not correspond to any CD burning related activities by the PC user and even appear to be taking place whether someone is on the PC or not. The PC does have remote assistance function turned-on as a friend occasionally remotely helped the other family member who uses this PC. I have also noticed that over 30 Windows and security program files/functions have exclusive rules providing security (McAfee) program firewall exceptions allowing allowing all of these files to very frequently (almost daily) update the operating system files in both Windows and McAfee. This updating appears to be very excessive and at one point several months ago 450,000 operating system file transactions took place immediately after the PC was cleaned-off, the hard drive re-formatted and Windows, the security and other software programs reloaded in an effort to sanitize the computer. Does this IMAPI CD-burning service on/off command running routinely throughout the day totally unrelated to PC user activities suggest activities and data on my PC could be logged by someone who has breached my PC's security?? Thanks, My1HomePC
