    Have you disabled "bootup floppy seek" in the bios. Also If you have NAV g into their settings and adjust the drives ie: A that it scans for on bootup.

    If its not your Bios I strongly bet its your AV

    That is Norton Antivirus. It is just scanning for a disk. It doesnt harn your drive or computer in any way, so u shoudnt have to worry about it. I dont know how to disable it, but im sure there is an option somewhere

    Yo Dazz-

    Did changing your av2002 settings get rid of it? I have the same problem with xp and av2002 and I unchecked the floppy boxes and it still does it...any other thoughts?
