Default Invalid Drive L:\???


Every time I boot up my computer I get this pop up that says "instaling..."
and then another pop up that says "solution center" and in the duologue box it says; "invalid drive L:\"
I get about a dozen of these every time I boot up, and then it bitches at me for having my printer turned off, and then I get three more...
how can I stop this from happening?
I run Windows XP Home edition V 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600..
Any help would be appreciated.

Are you on a guest account? This is similar to what happens to me when i log on my dad's computer on the guest account. Well at least the dialog box with the words 'Installing . . .'.

Other than that, it might be a virus. Try doing a scan with AVG Free or whatever anti virus you have installed. Also update your anti virus before you scan.

No, it automatically sings me in as the administrator...
I scan with the latest version of McAfee at lest twice a week, and I get no new detected files. I deleted all the quarantined files... if this is the results of virus damage, what steps can I take to correct it?

OK, so I got a "HP Update" and when it was done installing a familiar dialog box popped up... this time it gave me a error number, I haven't seen it in months so I made a point of 'writing' it down;
"Error 1327. Invalid Drive: L:\"
@Dude, I'll try that.. any in particular? I got MMC/SD, USB 2.0, SmartMedia/xD, Compact Flash 1 & 2, and Memory Stick/Pro ports in the chaise face (tho I never use but the MS/pro and the USB). And are you suggesting that I save the updates to the card then transfer them to the hard drive?

following what you and dude said, try putting a MS/pro card in, and go to my computer and see what the drive letter is. if it is indeed drive L, you know that it is just the reader.

i meant put it in drive L. mine used to say invalid drive E, then when i put a memory card in the slot it would work. im not sure why it did this, as it always used to play up.

Ok, I put a flash card into Drive L... it tryed running something, I don't know what it was too fast for me to read it. After all that a duologue box popped up with:
"an installation package for the product Solition Center
cannot be found. Try the installation again using a valid
copy of the installation package 'SolitionCenter.msi'."
I hit cancel, but it just ran again, and again, and again, and again.
After about half an hour of the same thing, I removed the flash card, and restarted my computer...
Is this "solition center" an important file that I should look into, or could I find a way to disable it?
