Does not seem to be anti-virus disabled it to no effect, cleared list as well.
I think it is a program as I now see for a moment a "program not responding message" as Windows shuts down and the floppy drive goes mad. This only happens after the drive has been used, If I reboot without using it it seems okay.
Cannot trace the program everything looks normal in device manager and task manager any ideas?
Do you have 'Disk cleanup' running in the background when the computer is idal? if so try changing the default setting to say every 1/2 hour or so, it is a fact that when this device is running then it checks all drive's irrespective whether or not their are any disk's present in the system...
