Weird problems with XP accessing the floppy drive randomly and other t
Posted 12 November 2006 - 03:22 PM
Also, If I delete a file from within Explorer, the window doesn't always refresh to reflect the change. This also happens when I cut/paste a file to another location. I can manually hit F5 to refresh the window, but I don't know why it doesn't refresh automatically.
If anyone has any idea on how to remedy these problems, I'd be very grateful.
Much thanks in advance

old versions of nod32 used to randomly access my empty disk drive (back when i had one) at odd times.

Hmm... that's an interesting statement
windows randomly accessing the a: drive is usually either a sign of a virus, or a sign of antivirus.

i like the extra stability but that bugs me too.

i just did a fresh reinstall of this a few weeks ago.. i don't believe i had anything different in my old installation and explorer worked fine, and the a: drive was never accessed..
i'll try running an antivirus, but i run the adaware and spybot weekly, along with tweaknow's regcleaner..
any other suggestions would be appreciated..

thanks, but like i said in the original post, i've never used the drive before. plus, in your case, sounds like a reboot wouldve fixed the problem as well.
You know, I had tried that as well, and it never helped. At first I thought it was some stupid little lamer getting into my system using sub-seven, but someone else told me to try that and it worked. IIRC, I also disabled some media service which caused the issue to stop around the same time. Don't remember which one though, sorry.
