My floppy drive is being accessed constantly!

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.

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