Still using Floppies?

It seems like just yesterday that floppy drives were the “cool” thing to use and now we’ve sort of gone past CDs as well.

When it was scanning the messages, it went up to the thousands or even ten thousands before it would finish. Sounds like a virus, so I used AVG to scan for a virus. No luck. I cleaned the cookies and temp files. Help. Thanks.
