    yes, hello...

    I have downloaded spyware program, and it works great, thank you...

    however, whenever i startup the program and check for updates, it is trying to access microsoft office xp cd... i have no cd, and why is it asking for the cd anyways, why does it need it in order to run the program and update the programo_O

    Hi damon,

    I'm just going to guess at this one, until you get an "official" answer.

    Any time I use a program which requires the CD (one game in particular comes to mind), it seems to leave temporary entries behind, probably in the registry. Afterwards, even Ad-Aware (while doing its registry scan) will repeatedly complain "no disk in the CD".

    But if I shut down/restart, that seems to clear those temporary entries and there's no problems until the next time I actually use the CD drive.

    So try shut-down/restart and then run the program, to see if that helps. I'm under Win XP-Home, if that makes a difference.

    Best,
    Mike
