System Configuration:
HP media center, windows xp media center edition, windows explorer. 6.02800.116.xpspx.030422-1633

I think the application that was giving the disk errors is Microsoft Internet Explorer Web Browser. Explorer is in the windows-xp “auto startup” menu and opens when the computer is powered up.

A little background history:

We access the internet through Hughes High Speed Satellite Internet Service. When we started the service a couple of months ago (in July), we had no problems with Explorer connecting with the internet (no error messages). After downloading “Zonealarm Internet security Suite” via the HughesNet web tools application, we were able to configure ZoneAlarm and access the internet once (no errors messages). The next time we started up the computer ZoneAalarm windows came up but the computer “froze” (the mouse stayed as an hourglass) and we could not access any windows. The only thing we could do was shut down the computer and restart it. But when the computer was restarted (each time) the computer would have the same “freeze-up” situation occurring.

Hughes Net technical support advised us to uninstall Zone alarm and find a security suite that would work on the computer. We uninstalled ZoneAlarm (had to restart the computer in Safe mode). When we restarted the computer in normal mode, we started to get the “explorer.exe-no disk” errors.

I hope this further explains the situation.
