pc keeps asking for a disc to install

  ole1999 23:23 20 Jan 2006


everytime i start up my p.c it keeps asking to insert a scan disc or something.
"please insert scan disc on a c/d rom, user source 1, please wait while windows configures scan".

It gives me 3 options, cancel, browse, and ok, then says path 1, scan msi, to install the scan find the scan msi folder, i can only remove the message with my task manager, but on every reboot it just returns, i don't even know what the scan msi is that it is asking for.

os? if xp and you have an xp disk try sfc /scannow or system restore if a recent issue

sorry, it is xp yes, and i don't have a disc.

I have done a system restore, but it has not done anything, thanks for your quick reply.

can you recall anything you might have been doing prior to this issue?

Hi, i installed last week a2 anti virus which i had put on a disc because my escan had expired, i have uninstalled escan and am now using a2, that is all i have done in the past week.

has this occurred since those actions and did either have the facility for a system snapshot prior to scan? if not i suggest you restore to when you can last remember it working ok

go to run and type msconfig then select startup
and have a look to see if there is anything in there that resembles this
