Refreshing 'My Computer' in Win98 and the floppy

    Why is it that everytime I double click on "My Computer", the floppy
    drive makes that floppy seek noise, and the A drive takes about 2 seconds
    to appear in the window? It's getting very annoying. Is there any way
    to stop it so that everytime I open "My Computer" it doesn't search for
    the floppy drive? It used to not do that, but for the last month, it has
    done it consistently. What caused it anyway? I'm running Windows 98 SE.
    Please help.

    Make sure that the 'Recent Documents' list is cleared.
    Go to Device Manager / Performance tab. Click on
    'File System / Floppy Disk'. Uncheck 'Search for new
    floppy drive....'
