I keep getting a pop up box, titled "Windows - No Disk". Inside the box is a red circle with a white X, "There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive.", followed by three buttons: Cancel, Try Again, Continue. It does not appear to be associated with any program I am running at the time, because it happens randomly with different programs: IE, Canon ZoomBrowser, Outlook Express..... After trying all of the buttons, the box pops back up instantly, and you can hear the computer attempt to read the disk drive.

After closing any/all programs, nothing is showing in task manager. Any help in finding the root of the request and what it is related to?

Try opening Task Manager to the Processes tab. Then click on the CPU column to get the highest usage numbers up top.

Then click on the box and see what sort of activity you get. Get the name of the processes that jump and we may be able to identify it.

Also, in the Processes tab, click on the View menu and then on Select Columns, then put a check in the IO Reads box. Then do the above stuff again - but this time with the IO Reads column info.

I tried all of your suggestions, but nothing stood out to me. SMSystemAnalyzer moved to the top of the activity list briefly each time I clicked cancel. I read on other posts to right click and select 'go to process'. This took me to 'csrss.exe' So now I have found the program prompting the error, but what is my next step in correcting?

I am also unsure what to do with the IO reads information.

SMSystemAnalyzer appears to be a part of the iolo System Mechanic program. Try uninstalling it to see if it helps.

As for the IO Reads, it'll check the disk accesses of the programs. Just double click on the IO Reads column to bring the big numbers to the top - then click on the box to see what program is creating the most disk reads.
