hp 166mhz brio has started searching for a long time ie 30 seconds on the floppy at startup just as the icons on the desktop appear. Have serched for virus cleaned startup disabled all except.
systray and explorer.
any help please.
If you are using Win98, try this. Right click on "My Computer". Click on Properties. Click on Performance. Click on File System. Click on the "Floppy Disk" tab at the top of the page. If the "Search for new floppy......"is checked, click on it to clear it. Reboot and see if that solves your problem. KW1
If it's still doing it, try clearing the document history. Right click on the Taskbar and select Properties. Now click on the"Start Menu Programs" tab. Now click on "Clear" to clear the document history. Restart the PC and see if it still does it at startup.
If that does no good, what shortcuts does the Start Menu have on it?
The other possibility is somehow there's shortcut on the Desktop that has the a:\ drive as part of it's command path or the shortcut's command path is not a valid path.
