I did a search for the above subject but kept getting a word was too small and got no results. Please direct me to this topic if you know where it is. My problem doesn't happen on startup and I can't figure out what triggers it, but I keep getting a Windows - No Disk screen and it doesn't want a disk in the A drive or the CD drive and I don't know what it wants. I think the problem lies in Windows Update. After a few years of having it turned off, I selected what I thought I should get. I think this problem didn't start then. I think it started after I caught it Windows Updating last week when I had it turned off. I went back and turned it off again after it was done installing. I don't even know what it was it installed.

I have Windows XP Home and recently removed CA Internet Security Suite and installed System Mechanic 7. Besides making my computer run slower, I still didn't have this problem. I have my hard drive partitioned so it's C and D. The screen may be popping up when System Mechanic is virus checking or something in the background. I've done a complete virus scan on my computer every day and have defragmented the disk numerous times. I've read on the internet that it might be caused by Microsoft Update KB913433. Flash something. I would like to try and delete this but do not know how. Please answer in simple, detailed terms as I consider myself a beginner. Thank you.

For one System Mechanic 7 is not an anti-virus program. It cannot be used to replace one. It can also cause problems on some PCs.

As for an update causing that error the only one I can think of is an Office update and it needs the Office CD to compete the update.

This error also comes up on some HP computers.

What is the make amd model of your computer? What other anti-malware programs do you have? Do you have Office installed and if so what version? How long did you go with updates turned off?

Your computer may be infected. To check follow the directions in the links below.
