    Whenever I click on 'compose', or 'send', O/E scans my floppy. This lasts at least 6, if not, more, seconds and is very annoying. I originally fixed that issue by removing MS Office FastFind. That only lasted about a week, because O/E is now at it again. FastFind is not noted anywhere on my system, unless it's back in the registry... somewhere. I am running Norton antivirus, but I have always been and this has never happened before. Unless it's part of a recent update. I have MS Office 2000 installed, but only to 'run from disk' and quite frankly, that's when this issue started. As I metioned, this was once noted as a 'FastFind' issue and was resolved, but that's no longer on my system and O/E has started doing this again. I run Spybot quite often, so I'm fairly confident that adware/spyware isn't the cause. I'm running Win'98, OutlookExpress 6.0 and Norton antivirus. I can't think of anything else I'm running that may cause this. I just don't get it....

    You may have set Norton ANtivirus to scan everything.
    Check it out and reconfigure if needed.

    Thanks palko, but Norton is set to scan incoming and outgoing mail... no option there to scan the floppy. Unless I'm missing something. Again.. it only does this when I Create and then again when I Send... it doesn't scan when I Send/Receive. One more thing...I put a floppy in, to see if it would return a message if it didn't find whatever it was looking for, but it didn't scan. I then tried it again without the floppy.. and it's not doing it anymore. PLEASE KEEP THE SUGGESTIONS COMING BECAUSE I'M SURE IT'S GONNA START DOING IT AGAIN. Thanks again, techies.
