LOOKING FOR AN UTILITY FOR SHUTDOWN

Hi,everyone! I?ll try to be clear.3 or 4 years ago I had a pc running W98.I didn?t know anything about computers then, so I never knew which software told me I had a diskette or CD in the PC when I wanted to shutdown it.Do anyone know which one can be or if there?s an utility that works in this way at this moment?I need it for W98SE and Windows XP Pro.Thanks a lot!

Re: warning on shudown

Caia,

All I know is that Norton Antivirus warns you if you have a diskette in at shutdown. The reason: it might contain a boot sector virus which activates on boot.

But I don't think this is enough of a reason to buy the product.

Well,as a matter of fact,someone told me before some antivirus programs do that,but I have Norton installed and never warns me when I forgot a diskette or cd on.I?ve took a look at it after reading your reply.Norton analizes CDs and diskettes but I didn?t find it warns in any way.I guess I have to get used to check before shutting down =)Thanks again!
