Hi Christian,

It looks like your having a problem on that drive A: or your Floppy drive you can anytime disable it on the CMOS try to check it so that you also know how to do in your own theres a choices there to remove drives, same as how to malfunction USB, just like my internet cafe all USB are being disable to prevent viruses. Other options could be removing your floppy drive you just open your CPU to do it it's just simple then once it's remove it done, it's very easy steps to do it. Maybe, the reason why your computer hang is not in the floppy drive is either your Operating System that need check up for the virus, or your computer is really slow, i mean it's obsolete enough to handle new application that causes lag or hang.

Basically, the floppy drive is enabled by default in the BIOS. So, when you install Microsoft Windows and you don’t have a floppy drive installed on your CPU tower, the floppy drive will still appear in Microsoft Windows after installing the operating system. Removing or uninstalling it from the Device Manager may help but may get reinstalled when you restart the computer because it is enabled in the BIOS.

So, the best way to get rid of it is to disable it from the BIOS. To do this, restart the computer then press DEL, DELETE, F2, or whichever key is used to go to the BIOS. In the BIOS, navigate to the drive management section then look for the floppy drive. Now, set the floppy drive to “Disabled” or any similar option then save and exit the BIOS.

This should fix the problem.
