PC seeks A: drive twice instead of once on boot

Hello everyone,

I have not been able to find any information regarding my problem, and I would appreciate whatever insights you may have. I installed AVG free anti-virus on my PC (windows XP pro), and I notice that instead of seeking the a: drive once on boot like usual, the PC checks the a: drive twice. The first time the a: drive is checked is before windows loads (normal); the second time the a: drive is checked is just before the windows logon screen (not normal). To be sure, I uninstalled AVG. The PC boots normally seeking the a: drive just once before loading windows. I can then log on without the PC seeking the a: drive again. I reinstall AVG and the a: is checked again a second time just before the logon screen. What's going on here? Is this normal or a sign of a larger problem?

Thanks for your help,

it is avg scanning the a: drive for virus before windows loads. if it is not causing problems then it is ok. i would get rid of avg and go with computer assoceiates etrust antivirus. it is one of the best out there. however it is not free
