Ever time I open a notepad doc or similiar the floppy drive starts running for a few moments even though there is nothing in it. This has just started happening afterv SP2 install. Is there a solution to this?

It may very well be that you last accessed A: from the notepad prog .Try starting notepad then explore C: for a file to load open & read it..then close notepad.. It shouldnt reread the drive after that (maybe)..
