Screen saver problem

I use photos stored on my computer as my screen saver. I get this message block
Photo Saver.SCR
No disk in drive\Harddisk5\DRS

The screen saver works so how do I get rid of the message

Welcome!

Go to Personalization>Screen Saver>Settings>Browse and select the folder where your pictures are.

I suspect you set up the screen saver while a CD was in the drive, or maybe some pics got deleted it is looking for.

Had another problem with the APC Powerchute personal edition. I had an older version so I went to their web site an downloaded the newer version. After I did that, the program wouldn't work, so I tried to uninstall it and reinstall the newer version. Now the Icon and the screen that tells me what has happened,ie shut down for 9 sec and restarted, battery this much strength. is missing. in device manager it says the APC is working properly, but it doesn't show up in the program menu. Do you have suggestions for this? Not sure I love the Windows 7 yet!
