Every time I start my Windows 2000 Pro computer I get this message:

cisvc.exe - there is no disc in the drive. Device\hard disk 4\Dr 5

Again I think I may have deleted something I shouldn't but am not sure. If any one can offer any help please do.

This message is persistent and doesn't go away for several minutes even when clicking close or cancel. Then all of a sudden it is gone. But the next time I start it is back.

I have run windows update, adaware, nod32 virus scan, panda virus scan, spybot s&d, spyware blaster and everything comes up clean.

I also have registry first aid program and think I may have deleted something there if that is the proble. I am not sure what is going on.

Thanks for any help.

cisvc.exe is a process that belongs to the Microsoft Windows Operating System. It is used to monitor the memory usage in CIDAEMON.exe and prevent low memory problems. This is an essential system process and should not be removed. This program is an essential system process and should not be removed.

did you create backup copy of the registry before you started deleting stuff with the registry program? if so, restore the backup.
if not, you may need to re-install windows, and any other programs which were affected.
when using a registry editor, it is always good to do a search on a process if you dont know what it is. just google it, there will be several hits explaining what it is, if its good or bad, etc.
