Put the floppy back in let it do what it wants to do and then see what happens next time with the disk out. It might need to finish something off..

"This is because there is a file in the Documents section under the Start button that was on the floppy. I'm using Win2K here, but I believe there are 2 ways to fix this. Either go to your C:\Windows\Recent folder and delete all the files there (they're just shortcuts) or right-click the taskbar (next to the Start button), and choose properties. On the dialog which pops up, there will be a "Clear Documents" button. This should fix it. If not, check your Anti-virus program settings to ensure its not set to scan the floppy drive at startup (Set to "When accessed" and "At shutdown")."
