On another one of my computers I am constantly asked to put in my windowsXP disk because some files are unreconised. I know the system is stable and dont want to reinstall any files. Is there anyway I can disable this pop up from coming up?

When I put the correct XP disk in it goes. When i take out the disk a few minutes later it pops up again. It doesnt mention which files its struggling with.

This problem could occur because of Spyware , go on over to the Security section of this fourm and post you problem along with a hijackthis log .

Please do this.
Download 'Hijack This!'. HijackThis
Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

Or HERE if that link fails to work or you don't have a zip program installed .

Your copy of HijackThis needs to be in a folder of it's own. When HJT fixes anything, it makes backups of the original files in the folder it is in. Since Temporary folders are emptied now and then (the files are DELETED), it would not be a good idea to have your backups there. Those backups would be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!


1. Please go to you're 'My Documents' folder, right-click and select 'New > Folder' then name the folder 'HJT'.

2. Copy and paste HijackThis.exe to the new folder.

3. Close ALL windows except HJT

4. SCAN with HJT

5. POST the new log in this thread using 'Add Reply'

DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS SOME OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO YOUR COMPUTER'S HEALTH

I have a similar problem with programs on our Domain. This happens to users with User permissions. The fix is to open all installed programs first as administrator.

For example if I install Outlook, and then the user logs on it needs the disk. If I install and open the program, it works OK.

just a thought, although this could be a different case.
