Response of your technician:
Seems a bug in avast... other users complain about the floppy being accessed by avast...
Hope they could solve this.

... it's not "my technician". This is a user to user forum. I'm not in any way related to Alwil or Avast.
Just for info.  ;D

on Windows 7 32 I had installed Avast Professional and there was no prolema.
I have now installed Avast securiy internet 5.0.418 and I noticed that every time I open the "Computer" folder you enable the driver of the FloppyDisk (issuing annoying "GRRRR"), even if I open a HD and then return back with the arrow in the upper left resumes the F.Disk. You have some solution to delete this annoying problem? 
Thank you

@ Logos: German Emperor William II...  ;D a little weirdo, so I thought he's good for me being an avatar...  ::)

@alpha45:

well, MY solution would be to disable the floppy in BIOS. Who needs a floppy nowadays?

I do not think it is an optimal solution, I do not see why should I disable the ardware a bag a program...

imo you shouldn't just disable it, but remove the device ;)

@ Logos: au contraire, Sire!
It's the french where everybody seems to be related somehow to Napoleon I (and of course to Louis XIV). "L'etat c'est moi" and so on...  ;D
We Germans weren't too lucky with our crowned leaders: the first was a good one, the second only reigned 66 days, and the third led us to World War I.
Okay, end off topic mode.

His mustache is as remarkable as those of Dali and/or Poroit...  I think another werdo in German history would be Ludwig II of Bavaria, most notably depicted in a film by Visconti...
