Lavasoft Ad-Aware encounter this error when I started my computer, right after windows XP home booted

There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive DeviceHarddisk2DR6.

This all started when I experience a system hang up, so windows XP was not shutdown properly, when I turn ON again my computer, and after I booted windows I meet again the said error, I already re installed the application, but same thing happens, same error appeared when I start windows XP, by this error, my anti virus is not working at all,

Please help me find ways to get rid of this error message,

Hi Mattewgems,

This problem normally occurs when you configured a removable drive as drive C:/ or you may not have a removable disk on the disk drive. Please check the Device Manager to check on the hard drives installed to your computer.
 
Since you are using Win XP, please do the following:
 
1. Click on the "Start" button.
2. Right-click on "My Computer".
3. Select "Properties".
4. Click on "Hardware" tab.
5. Click on "Device Manager".
6. Look for "Disk Drives".
7. Make sure that the driver for your disk is in there.
 
Change the drive letter assignment. Please follow these steps:
 
1. Log on to the computer as Administrator.
2. Insert a disk in the removable drive.
3. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage.
4. Click Disk Management.
5. Right-click the partition, logical drive, or volume that you want to change, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
6. Click the removable drive, click it, click Change, click the drive letter that you want to use, and then click OK.

Hi,

I am henry a computer network technician I read your problem about your personal computer you know I encounter this kind of problem, and the solution of that is to reformat your computer, so that all the data will be back.

By the way about your anti-virus, you must be change it into NOD32, don't not use Norton, NOD32 is better to use to your computer.

Regards,

Henry
