Hi, and welcome.

Start button, run, then type msconfig and hit ok...go to the startup tab....is Microsoft FindFast (or FastFind, whichever it's called, can't remember) listed? If so, uncheck it........and restart.

Email from poster (it'll be easier if you'll reply back to the thread as I may be away and others can help as well)


This is the message:

Dear AcaCANDY I tried finding Findfast the only thing I found was an icon that looked like a pair of binoculars with a lighting bolt.But when I clic on it,it say loading Microsoft office 2000. So the floppydrive still run when it's not being used

I believe that is the one you want to get rid of.....I don't have Office loaded on this computer to check it at this moment.
