ive got an older laptop which I rarely use.When I do use it I get the message

What message.

Try setting it back to factory settings. Maybe model number of laptop would help to see if you have that as a choice.

I haven't got the disc,its from an old Samsung phone???????

the disk for the software for Samsung phone..kies etc....the Samsung disk relating to when you plugged your phone into pc to download etc

Samsung Kies should be removable via add remove programmes.

it should be,but when I try to uninstall,i get the message "insert Samsung networking wizard disk"....anything to do with uninstalling Samsung asks for this disk..the message continually pops up,and eventually goes after third attempt to cancel it.its not so much the uninstalling,its the message continually popping up that I want to stop appearing continually

Have you tried to uninstall in Safe Mode?

Maybe it is just searching for the presence of a disc rather than a specific file on a disc. Worth a try just installing any old data disc when it asks for it. Might help, might not.
