Hi, My floppy drive has been acting up. It's being constantly accessed by -something-. I can't really figure out what is, though. I've since disabled the drive, but now Explorer and Norton Antivirus are sucking up -alot- of available RAM, causing my already crappy computer to run even slower.
All of this started when I disabled a few of the seemingly random programs that are checked to load up on startup. So I reenabled the programs, but the problems persisted. The programs I disabled where TINTSETP (two of them, both with run paths of C:\Windows\Blah blah\TINTSETP.EXE, but one is /SYNC and the other /IMENAME), IMJPMIG, and Sentry. I'm running Windows XP SP1, with most of the latest updates, if that helps any.
Thanks in advance.

Maybe norton is trying to scan the floppy...

Have you tried feeding it a formatted but empty floppy? Giving it something to teeth on might help.
