Once the media system is open, and whether playing music via my squeezebox or not, the system runs a scan to look for updated files. This causes a pop up window to appear that cannot be canceled and sits in the middle of my desk top until I can abort the scan. How do I either adjust so the system never scans for these up dates or override some other way. The pop up states a " scanner exe error" and suggests a disk be inserted !! Very annoying
Running later version and on XP

I am having a similar problem with Windows 8. Never had this problem with XP or Vista. It seems that it starts scanning files without being activated because the existing music library is not being saved and is searching for it. Then the "pop-up" window appears asking for a disk to be inserted.
Once my music files were found I am able to play music and when scanning for new files the "pop-up" appears again and have to keep closing it (about 7 times until it goes away) and scanning continues. When scanning moves to playlists the"pop-up" appears again and must be closed again. Scan continues then everything works as normal until next scan is initiated.
It is very annoying indeed!
