Default Windows Installs Floppy on startup...but i dont have a floppy drive

Anyone know how to fix this problem? I have no floppy drive but yet windows installs the floppy controller and drive on startup. Then when i shutdown it gives me an error that drive A: cannnot be communicated with or something. I dont believe i have the floppy cable even connected to my mobo. So why does windows recognize a floppy drive? Any help will be appreciated.

Im running windows xp pro sp2.

well to get rid of that bugger i would just go to Devise manager and disable it. also you can go into Bios and disable it from there too.
