The "AI Recovery" program should be something that you can turn off - either by doing the steps that it asks you to do or via some settings window within the app. The WMIPrvSE app is going to be harder to track down because it is a part of the Windows OS. Some other app is asking it to query the DVD drive.
If you don't mind, let's take AVAST out of the equation - replace it with MSE - and see if the issue goes away.
If you don't want to do that, or if the DVD drive is still being accessed with MSE installed, then we have a few other options:
1) Process Explorer
should let you see what app called WMIPrvSE but there can be more than one instance of WMIPrvSE running and you would need to use the PID info from Process Monitor to determine which instance of WMIPrvSE to look at within Process Explorer.
2) or you can enable the WMI trace log and use the PID info from Process Monitor to see what called WMIPrvSE.
