When opening Outlook or User Manager, I recieve a pop-up error message No Disk...There is no disk in the drive please insert a disk into drive. This just recently started happening. I have scanned for viruses and malware, ran hi-jack this. Nothing appears out of the ordinary. When I either put any disk in the floppy drive or disable the disk controller everything works fine. Any ideas?Attached File  no_disk.doc   25.5KB   214 downloads

Had the same problem with Quickime and Gaim. I performed a disk cleanup, and "recent documents" were pointing to files I deleted. I cleared the recent documents list for the OS and quicktime, and the problem went away. Still happens for Gaim, though. I need to dig further.

Please start your own topic as this one over 4 years since a post has been made to it.
Although your issue may seem similar there can be other factors that may need to be resolved.
By bumping on someone's topic it makes it confusing for the tech to understand who they are helping. This can in turn cause the wrong support to be given and can cause instability or worse to happen to your system.
Thank you for your cooperation.
