Floppy disk noises?

  spider9 12:59 30 Jun 04

I have noticed that when I click on any file etc on my desktop, the floppy disk 'light' comes on, and a whirring noise occurs momentarily.
Even when opening outlook Express, I get the same thing. In fact it seems to be 'activating' a seach for a floppy disc regardless of what I'm actually doing.
Can anyone tell me if I may have disturbed some setting that could be causing this?? Because it really is begining to do my head in!
Thanks, in anticipation.

Clear out any shortcuts in your "documents" folder in the start menu - there could be one there which refers to a file you opened on a floppy.

Just been into 'Documents' folder, but no shortcuts there.

Try re-booting. That often stops it - until the next time you use the drive.

Actually, I did a 'system restore' and problems is solved (but not why it happened!) - Oh well, ever onward!!
Thanks to all'
