Noise from floppy drive

By curtong ·
I have one user experiencing noise coming from the floppy drive. One of the cause could be due the Norton Anti Virus. How do disable the scan for the floppy drive?

It sounds like Norton maybe trying to scan the floppy drive.

To disable the floppy drive scan, for real-time scan.
Open Norton. Click Configure -> File System Auto Protect -> Uncheck Floppy under drive types.

To disable the floppy drive scan, for daily scans.
Open Norton. Click View -> Scheduled Scans -> Edit -> Uncheck Floppy under drive types.

Good luck!

Ask the user, whether they actually use the floppy drive, if they answer:

>10 times a day = Leave the scan as it is (explain that they are at a high risk of getting a virus infection, most users understand)

Sometimes <10 times a week = Disable the scan

Never = Disable or remove the floopy drive

regards,

Jim
