Everytime when I have used a floppy (and removed it again), my PC is
searching for this floppy when I turn off my PC or logoff the current user.
Very annoying.
With W98SE one could use a setting with the Device Manager to let the PC NOT
to search for a floppy. Is there with WXP (Home) a possibility to do the same
or is there a setting in the REGISTRY that can be changed to do the job ?
Thanks Jan.
