I have this annoying pop-up that loops several times before going away.
The pop-up window has this message,
"Problem ejecting floppy disk drive, Device Agere System AC97 Modem cannot be stopped now. Try stopping it later." then it has a button to click "ok". (doesn't make sense)
It will make something run(spinning noise) in the background, whether it's the hard drive or the floppy drive I don't know. Very annoying.

This has been on my older IBM A30 thinkpad laptop(running WindowsXP) for quite awhile. I have had Zone alarm, WinCleaner, adaware, in the past and they have not rooted this thing out(if it is malefic in nature). I now have Avast and spybot loaded for antivirus and anti spyware, they haven't gotten rid of it either. though spybot has made it possible that I can boot up without the winXP CD-rom this last time. it is slow booting up also. anyone know what this is I am dealing with? Thanks!
