About 20 times a day when I use some programs it always go check my A drive
'for about 1 min, some times more'

Why is this, can I fix it ?

Help please... it's really annoying, and loud

Gerry.

Check:

1.  Anti-Virus software
2.  Empty recent documents

I'm sure the latter will do it. It solved it for me when I found -
somewhere - a way to empty the Recent Documents list.

Unfortunately, it STAYS empty all the time now, and I can't figure out
how to make it start remembering again!
