Clicking Harddrive

  sebtiger 17:30 12 Dec 2006

Hi there

I am having a problem when I open Firefox for the first time, it causes the screen to freeze and the hard drive to start clicking horribly for about 5 minutes. I am scared that it might delete everything so I am going to have to do some backing up. I have tried lots of other programs and it seems to only be Firefox. I even uninstall ed then re downloaded it but it made no difference.

Please help

have you defragged lately? it could be that your disk is so fragged that it is seeking space all the time.
