    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    I've seen this error due to bad installations of software and due to malware.

    Please try putting a CD/DVD into the drive. It may take several tries, but the system is looking for a certain file on a certain device. This is most likely a CD/DVD that was pulled out before the program/installation was finished.

    Also, try scanning for malware with some of the free tools here: Free Online AntiMalware Resources
