 Strange floppy drive seeks

Can someone please suggest what might be causing the following?

On one development machine I have (VC++ 6.0 SP3 on Win98SE) everytime I
build an OCX project, just after the "Linking..." message appears in
the Build window, my floppy (A:) drive does a few seeks.  Then the
build proceeds normally.

I know this doesn't sound like a big problem, but believe me when
you're in a tight edit/compile/link/test loop it starts wearing on you
pretty fast!

I've checked the directory settings within the IDE to see if A: is
listed isn't.  I've also checked all the project settings
I can think of, I don't seem to be able to find any reference to the
floppy drive.

Any suggestions?

See if disabling antivirus stops this, you may also want to try this in
Safe mode.
