quite often i get a message " zonealrm.exe - there is no disk in the drive. please insert a disk into drive\device\harddisk4\dr14 " when booting up. the options are continue / try again or continue. i press continue and the same message is repeated with other DR numbers . I have an aldi pc with inbuilt card readers at the front. the message is starting to repeat now weith other programs such as anti hacker and spyware progs

any suggestions gratefully received

Look in task manager and see if there is a reference to qttask.exe If there is remove stop it then open msconfig and remove it from start up, reboot the pc.

i have now deleted other start up items using hijack this - not sure if problem will be solved
