If i dont want a person to use my floppy drive,how can I disable the floppy drive?I know how to do it through the BIOS setup but what I want is that when Iam in windows-95 and somebody tries to access it and the machine gives a beep.I ahve seen this done in DOS based systems.They have TSR or something running.If anybody has an answer to this I would appreciate it.In fact,even if you tell me how to do it in DOS is fine enough.

The closest thing that I know of would be to install Tweakui found at Microsofts Website. You can go into the my computer tab and uncheck the A: drive box and the A drive disappears My Comuter Icon and under Explorer. If they can't see it they can't use it! The only drawback is that it can be accessed through Dos Mode in Win95.

You should download a security application which will prevent access to the floppy or parts of the hdd if you want . download it from :
