Solved: Windows - No Disk error message on Startup
I'm having a similar problem to the person in this post , and because EAFieldler said to start a new thread if anyone else had the same problem I am.
Everytime I turn my computer on I get this error message popping up: Windows - No Disk
Exception Processing Message c0000013 Parameters 75b6bf9c 4 75b6bf9c
I have to click on "cancel" about 4 times before it disappears.
I've downloaded Hijack This, done a system scan and I'll post the log file at the end of my post. I really hope someone can help.

Fantastic, Rog! I started off trying the info on Quicktime in the link you sent and that fixed the problem. I think I'm stunned that such a long-named, sinister-looking error message could be fixed so quickly and easily. LOL!
Thank you soooooooo much for your help. I really appreciate it.
I started having problems with the same error message “Windows – No Disk” and/or “CTFMON.exe – No Disk”. I’ve read the post and my conclusion is that everyone has the same symptoms from what is perceived as programs or other software running on their computers, but in my case, it wasn’t any program. It was a Virus/Trojan I picked-up on my thumb-drive. At the same time the problem popped-up, McAfee detected and removed the following:
It seems that one of these Trojans or viruses were the culprits because once McAfee removed them a day later (Sunday their server was down for maintenance, so I couldn’t connect) the problem was gone and I haven’t had any problems since. Look for these Trojans, Worms or viruses on your computers and remove them. They may be the source of your headaches. Good Luck.
Thanks to the moderators for sharing their knowledge, much appreciated.
I went through the system config tool and followed Rogs' thorough and easily understood steps, thanks for explaining in detail.
The problem I have with this error was narrowed down to the SYSTEM.INI file. Once disabled in the system config and windows rebooted the error message is gone. However, I cant just leave that huge window file closed can I? I don't even know what its for but it uses a substantial amount of resources and being as nieve as I am I can only assume it is necessary.
Any thoughts Rog?
After re-enabling everything including SYSTEM.INI I cannot get on to the internet, it also seems several apps are not loading upon startup yet everything in the system config is checked to run. What happened? This made matters worse! I can't really do anything now. If I have gone back and enabled everything and windows isnt running properly, what the hell did I do?
I read a different post from another user with similar problem, Rog, you mentioned to run services.msc so I did, I noticed a lot of windows apps? disabled? I don't recall disabling any of them and as I mentioned before I went back into MsConfig and enabled everything. Now I am enabling these 1 by 1, royal pain in my *** and furthermore I don't even know if it will work! I do know this, I could use my computer before.
Sometimes I just want to go back to the days where Abacus was the tool to use! <sighs>
