    Hello,

    Which version of Spybot - Search & Destroydo you run?

    This is a known problem which can occur in Windows.
    The problem is usually cause by having Drive C assigned to a device with removable media. If you have that situation then either put media in Drive C or reassign the device to another letter.

    Best regards

    Red face There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive\Device\Harddisk3\DR6

    Hi - I am having a similar issue. If I click continue on the error messages about 3 times, it lets me into Spybot S&D (which operates fine), but the error is getting very annoying - and as it appears on startup of windows as well as when I open the application itself - it is slowing things down.
    I have tried uninstalling Spybot S&D - but this doesn't remove all the components and the error keeps popping up on startup - so it looks like I'm stuck with this pesky error...I really hope not as it is beginning to drive me nuts!

    The suggested links do nothing (sorry) - surely someone can help?

    Thanks either way!

    I'm to old to chase a problem like this down. I expect the program to be smart enough to handle this silly message.

    As it stands, it's of no value -- I like it to run something while I'm using this software -- instead of dealing with several dozen warning messages that are put up in the middle of the screen.
