Windows No Disk

Firstly, I run Windows XP/Home Version with SP/2

Occasionally, on starting up my PC I get the following message

Windows No Disk
Exception Processing Error C0000013
Parameters 75b6bf9c 4 75b6bf9c 75b6bf9c

It asks what I want to do and I say ?Continue? and things seem
to work but I would like to correct this error. I do have
Registry Mechanic and I?ve run it a few times but the error still shows up.

As I said, this does NOT happen every time.

Thanks in Advance for any help..

First of all DUMP Registry Mechanic!! It not only helps but it gets rid of some of WINDOWS XP. It did for me! I use Registry Fix (#1 in PC Magazine). and download. It only deletes old programs that you have deleted and left behind in the registry. It also corrects wrong entries for current programs in your Registry. This probably is your problem. One lady used it recently and found 697 errors in her Registry which it corrected. Windows when it is installed with SP2 usually has about 104 to 124 errors in the Registry. Then Defragment. Diskeeper is best. I hope this helps.

I've read some of the hits. It's not a Windows XP problem, but just a buggy program (like Apples iTunes or Quicktime, and quite a lot of others) that's being run at startup, and doesn't handle some exception too well. Go to start>run>msconfig>startup and find it by elimination.

Do NOT uncheck your antivirus or firewall, and after finding out what it was keep everything checked you're not positively sure you don't need running. In case of doubt, there are some good guides on the net that tell you what the regular programs in this list do, like on

Hope this helps and please let us know.
