why did't daemon install? what happen to my system?

well i install the latest version of daemon tools, as usual, daemon needs to restart my pc to continue the installation, so i turn off my pc and turn it back on the next day.

after the desktop finish booting, daemon installer did not pop up to continue to installation, which was strange, since i heard daemon installer is suppose to pop up and continue finishing the installation, however this did not happen, and i was wondering why?

anyways, i did manage to find the installer file and was able to continue the installation manually, still though, i find it abit strange, what's happening?

also, this morning i properly uninstall a digital camera driver, but the moment the driver is uninstalled a message comes up and asked me to "insert the windows xp cd since the critial parts of the system have been replaced, failure to do so will result in system unstability"

so again, what's happening? what did i do? i'm sure it's not a virus or spyware though.

please help, many thanks.

And Did You Place the XP CD ?? the CD-rom drive? It's usually a good idea to follow those instructions when asked to do so.. Some program uninstallers don't do a good job at removing their own software only and can corrupt or remove important Windows software.. You may not have done anything particularly wrong.

Hope this helps.

thanks for the help, and yes i did place the windows cd rom in the drive, the moment i do so, the dialog box disappeared and it appears my cd is being read, after a few secs though i didn't noticed anything happening on the screen, but then i guess if i'm not getting those dialog again then i guess it's problely fixed.
