The most common cause is some item in the Recent Documents lists. Try clearing that.
Can anyone tell me how to keep my computer from accessing my floppy drive during bootup.It accesses it during bootup and even a few seconds after the desktop icons appear.I changed the boot sequence in the BIOS to: hard drive-cd-rom-disable and floppy still gets accessed maybe three times total.Would it be ok to disable this device if I very rarely use it?I have WinXP by the way.Thanks
Although I'm using Windows 98 SE, this should also work with your XP edition...
Click 'Start', 'Settings', 'Control panel', and next click your 'System' icon, 'Performance', 'File system', and 'REMOVE' checkmark from 'Search for floppy each time your computer starts'.
This works fine for Windows 98SE, and is easily reversable if this change doesn't work for you...

Sounds like you don't have your setup sequence set correctly to me. When your computer boots up depress the delete button or the F1/F2 whichever gets you into the motherboard setup. Then look for the sequence and check if it reads a: then c: if it does then see if you can change it to c: then a:. Most computers are factory set to a: then c:. Another solution is to remove the floppy drive altogether from your machine. It can's access it if it is not there.
