I have had this problem for a while and would greatly appreciate some proper advice on how to prevent it/ work out what is causing it...

on startup the following error message box appears

* Title: Windows - No Disk
* Text: There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive
* Buttons: Cancel, Try Again and Continue


Clicking cancel will get rid of the box with no obvious side effects.

I have read that this may be connected with an incomplete uninstall of Norton antivirus (http://blogs.msdn.co.../29/497983.aspx) however I have not installed Norton on this system since the last reboot.

There do not appear to be any viruses on the system.

oh ok i remeber this one

you have removed a floppy disk without first unmounting it (windows does this automatically but cant unmount it if you are looking at a directory listing inside it)

ie if you are using exporer to look at the contents of the disk and then you eject it with the window still looking inside it

so windows thinks theres a problem becuase it has a disk in its file system table that it cant access

thats the cause, i'll have to think how to fix it, its probably one of your applications that is polling the disk (that windows thinks is still there but has a problem) hence the error.

what flavour of windows is it?
