Assigning Volume Label to C: Drive
Posted on 2001-09-04
The installation of Cerious Software's ThumbsPlus 4 has a window that says:
"Drive C:\ does not have a volume label which ThumbsPlus uses to associate thumbnails with disk files. Please enter a new label for the disk"
...and there's a text-entry box with "DRIVE_C" highlighted.
Clicking "OK" causes a DOS message box to appear whose title is: NORTON ANTI-VIRUS AUTO-PROTECT", and the message is:
VIRUS-LIKE ACTIVITY: The application C:\PROGRAM FILES\THUMBS4\THUMBS.EXE is attempting to write to the boot record of drive C:.

Well, I guess my C: drive doesn't have a label and that the appropriate thing to do is label it, right? And, how do I do it directly from within Win98, i.e. without using the Thumbs4 installation program?
