    “Userinit.exe – No Disk” message on logo

    On a Win NT 4 Workstation box w/ SP6a, I’m getting “WinLogon.exe – No Disk ‘There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive A:'” and “userinit.exe – No Disk ‘There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive A:'” errors upon logon. This occurs using any user account. Technet suggestions for the WinLogon.EXE error message were no help; none exist for the userinit.EXE. According to the user, no changes were made to the machine, i.e. opened email attachments, installed or removed apps, etc. A virus scan w/ the latest definitions turned up nothing. After the scan, I upgraded the Service Pack from 5 to 6a, w/ no remedy. The only thing that occured slightly out of the ordinary was a frozen Outlook ’97, which was killed using Task Manager. On the reboot, the error messages appeared. They can be bypassed by inserting a floppy in the a: drive or clicking ignore from the menu of .
