Disable CD spin-up when opening "my computer"?

    Every time I open up explorer or my compter, my drives spin up and it takes a good 10-15 seconds for the program to finally open. Is there a way to disable the spin-up of the drives when opening up my computer/explorer? It's really getting annoying. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Well I guess everyone will be doing it now Empire...

    Delete the Reg Keys under:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Remote
    Computer\NameSpace

    Then reboot. No delay whatsoever when I open up my computer now.
