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?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
