Thread: floppy access after login

  1. #1

    floppy access after login

    we got a windows 98 machine that right after a user logs in the floppy goes "enenenen" and the led is on then the cdrom drive reads.

    any idea what could be doing this? (we've tried disabling everything in msconfig)

    thanks much!

    Re:floppy access after login

    I have seen this after installing anti-virus software. Do you have any installed?

    we have trend antivirus installed, but it's been installed for a while before this problem started. we added scanner software and now it does it, but we removed the scanner software and it still does it :-/

    thanks

    I would try to uninstall the anti-virus software, just to test it out.

    Perhaps is a change on the scanning behaviour because of an antivirus update?
