When accessing any application program in windows my PC tries to read the A: drive and the C: drive together even if there is no disk in A: . This slows down the machine a lot and i have no idea why , however it does not do it in safe mode.I have asked many people but nobody has found out why yet.

Antivirus programs and First Aid programs have been known to cause these syptoms It sounds like the PC is trying to run a virus scan on the A:drive and C:drive which would slow the system down If you have either of these kinds of programs on your PC remove them and see if this problem disapears Hope this has been some help, if not re-submit this question for more assistance.
