After removeing Norton antivirus & firewall 2006 via there online removal tool from my XP Home machine to allow installation of Panda Antivirus & firewall 2007, I now get a box at startup and restart with a red circle and X saying, windows-no disk. There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive and 3 buttons, Cancel, Try again and Continue. The only way to remove it is by clicking cancel about 20 times till it dissappears. What is this box and why is it appearing.Once its gone theres no probs till next startup or restart. I only have a reload disc not XP disc.Any ideas please.
If it does not show up in safe mode,then it could be a hardware driver or a programme that loads on startup thats gone walkies. Use Vogs advice and disable some startup options in msconfig and hopefully you may nail it down. I wonder if Norton still lurks on your machine.
I done a restore and got norton back and the box has gone.Then done the norton online uninstall of A/V & FW and lo and behold the box has returned. MSCONFIG has some strange boxes & squigles on one startup prog and 2 have blank startup and command sections but do have locations.
Well done lads. I have de-selected the 2 items in MSCONFIG that were unreadable squares and squigles and left it on selective start up and done a restart and it has now gone.Will now turn off pc and back on again and see what happens.Post back shortly.
