The latest update for NVIDIA Geforce Experience introduced new features that can improve your Windows experience. However, the update also caused a new error that’s quite annoying.

Each time you boot or reboot your device you receive an error message saying that ‘There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive D:.’.

Of course, the NVIDIA graphic drive cannot use a disk so this NVIDIA web helper.exe prompt is just a generic bug.

So, if you don’t want to receive the same error message each time you start or restart your Windows 10 machine, follow the guidelines below.


We’ve written extensively about NVIDIA driver issues before. Bookmark this page in case you need it later.

  2. In the Run box enter devmgmt.msc and click on OK.
  3. Expand Disk Drives and find the removable D drive (note: it mustn’t be your hard drive).
  4. Right-click on this drive and choose Disable.
  5. Restart your Windows 10 system.
