What is the reason for...
...needing to use the XP Home CD ? What problems are you having ? (they could be related to the error messages)
I dont know what problems in my pc?!
I dont know what problems in my pc?! Before yesterday my pc works fine as normal. Yesterday it suddently popped up so often and today too.
U mean I need to use XP Home cd but why I was trying to use XP Home cd and it stated that it can't because there has a newer version cd. (that is right cuz I upgraded SP2 cd from XP Home cd.
Right now I dont know what I am supposed to do with both error messages.
by the way, i am not sure if it is called error message or
I forget to add to tell...
two days ago I was asked to upgrade windows defender. I upgraded it.
Is that caused?
This is a different error then your original post.
"There Is No Disk in the Drive. Please Insert a Disk into Drive \Device\harddisk\Dr1"
Did you run any programs such as anti virus or anti spyware,click HERE for some free programs.
Now I run AVG Anti Virus, AdAware SE, and Windows Defender.
I am not sure if it might be caused by Trial 30 days Norton Antivirus yesterday which I downloaded, installed and uninstalled immediately cuz it didn't work well. Then I use AVG Anti Virus.?!
By the way,yesterday and today AVG, ADAware SE, and Windows Defender did scanned and everything is okay without any spyware or virus.
How did you remove norton
I found this LINK which mentions a connection between the error message and norton.
replied to u
I was trying to unintsall norton in add/remove and it was not successful and some of files couldn't be removed. I then downloaded "norton removal tool" and it uninstalled norton succesfully.
But error messages popped up frequently and when I start up the pc and it popped up .
I read your link and it seemed almost the same problem as my pc. However, I have never use "Spybot S&D 1.4" so how error messages still popped up.
Do you think if there is no way to solve it so that means I would have to format and reinstall XP home again?
a registry cleaner such as ccleaner or regseeker to remove any remnants of norton.
still pop up the same error message
After I downloaded and installed ccleaner. It had cleaned up alot and then I rebooted the pc. The same error message popped up.
What else can I find a way to get rid of it?
How about system restore...
Also click start>run>regedit
Look for Symante and norton,see what shows up.
still popped up error message :-(
After I deleted all norton, symantec and emule in registry editor as u suggested, the error message still popps up.
so what do u suggest me to do?
by the way, I am afraid to use system restore to cause all mess up?!
If I use system restore and it still doesnt work so what would i do?
I still get the same pop- up after system restore
I recently decided to use system restore to change to one month earlier. After it changed and then reboot the pc. I still get the same pop up error message after booting the pc.
I guess I have no way to get rid of it although I deleted threads of norton and emule in registry editor, and cclear.
i would try system restore...
Try it before you installed norton and defender.
I'm not sure what you used eMule for, but any kind of P2P, (Peer to Peer), file sharing is full of danger, especially if users do not check the files they download for viruses, spyware and trojans. Possibly you caught something nasty whilst downloading files.
Have a look at this TechGuy discussion here;
They had a solution to a similar problem. Perhaps it will help you.
After I read your link, I already downloaded Hijack and intsalled it. But I dont know where to find any thread on the log file that causes my pc?
Last week I installed Emule for downloading some movies like "Hitcher", Jericho season 1 part one, Lost season 2 part 1-3, and was trying to download Norton via emule.
I am not sure if it has caused or not. My friends told me that they use Emule and nothing happened to their pc.
By the way, I dont understand what p2p (peer to peer) although I googled p2p and don't understand it.
I recently ensured to see if there is still emule file in my pc. I opened "program files" and there is still Emule. I was trying to delete it and it couldn't be deleted and popped up the message
"Error Deleting File or Folder
Cannot delete file: access is denied.
Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use."
Then I googled and found out that it could unlock and delete it by using http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
Should I try to do that?
(I pray it will get rid of it)
still pop up error message
After I unlocked and deleted Emule file by UNLOCK. The same error message (windows - no disk) popped up after the pc booted.
I guess I have tried to use all different softwares to get rid of it but no successful.
What else can i try to kill that stubborn error message.
This is the root of all your problems
and I fear that little further help can be given you in these forums.
Let me explain, and in the process be brutally clear.
P2P means Peer to Peer. This is the term used on the internet for people who share files between other people. Peer to Peer means downloading files from the computers of people who have them, and letting other people download files from your computer. It is file sharing.
The problem is, file sharing is too often used for illegal activities, like downloading music without the artist's permission, and without paying the artist any royalty. It is called Piracy in the trade.
The same goes for downloading films, tv shows, etc without the owners permission and without paying for them. It also applies to downloading full programs, like Nortons.
You have said, clearly, in this post that you have been using eMule to download films, (The Hitcher), Jerico and Lost, and Nortons Security or Anti-virus. This is Piracy.
Please re-read the Forum Policy on illegal activity, link here. You would have read this when you signed up to CNET Forums.
Help is not offered for those involved in illegal activities such as Priracy. It is against Forum Policy to do so.
Therefore I must suspend this discussion here and now. No further help can be given. If you feel I have made a mistake in my post, feel free to email me through my profile.
