computer freezes and will not log on to

By jmccallister ·
I am working on a pc that is running win95. When I type in my password or anybodys password and hit enter to log into the network, the computer wants to read the floopy drive. When it stops trying to read the drive, the hour glass just sits there and spins. Windows does not load and I have to reboot. I do not have a disk in it and do not need it to read the drive to log in. If I hit cancel at the network password promp instead of logging in, windows will load up o.k.

First, check your StartUp folder and make sure that it is not trying to load something from disk. Second, check your documents folder in the Start menu. If you have any shortcuts to docs on a floppy your system will periodically check that location.

Hi,
Check your Virus Scan properties. It sounds like it is set up to scan your FDD if it is disable that option. If that doesn't work the delete *.pwl files and recreate the user profiles.
