Symantec warning each time I shut down

    I have Parallels 3.0 running on my MacBook Pro. I installed Symantec AntiVirus and each time I shutdown/reboot, I'm prompted with the following message:

    Symantec AntiVirus found a disk in the floppy drive. In order to decrease the risk of being infected with a boot sector virus, remove the floppy before you shut down the computer.

    I don't even have a floppy drive connected to the MBP. But I do have a A: Floppy icon listed in My Computer under Windows XP. When I click on it, it takes me to A: and there is a file in their titled "IGT".

    How can I tell the system that I don't have a floppy drive AND what is this IGT file under A:?

    With the vm started (logged into windows before shutting down), browse to devices->floppy and disconnect.

    Or under the OS Window view you will notice a floppy disk icon at the bottom right side. Click and disconnect.

    Shouldn't have any problems after this.
