Hi. Right after I had installed Norton Internet Security 2007 I started getting this problem. When shutting down, a window pops out and it says like this.

"The drive is not ready for use: its doors maybe open. Please check Drive A: and make sure that a disk is inserted and the drive door is closed."

what could be wrong?

Thanks.

If I remember Norton checks the floppy drive when logging off to ensure that any floppy in there doesn't have a boot virus on it, although it shouldn't be saying the drive isn't ready.

Try deleting your recently opened documents list (%userprofile%\recent), there might be a shortcut in there which points to the a: drive.

I had already uninstalled NIS2006 since it was only a trial version but still when shutting down drive A is still searched. I had removed my drive A for almost 4 months now and it never had this problem, just right after I had installed NIS2007. How do I get rid of it? thanks for the posts.

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
