->> can anyone help? My computer is talking to me...I click on a folder and it says the folders name, I burn a disc, it's telling me I am burning a disc, etc. It never did this before and just started...does anyone know why and how to stop it, other than hitting the volume button?

That should do it.

->> Most weird stuff like that comes from accidentally hitting a keystroke that turns on something "helpful" from the Universal Access system preference. If you open Universal Access, you will see that Voice Over is toggled on and off by Command-F5.
