Hard drive activity

  Graham. 22:48 27 Dec 2008

Often I can hear the hard drive clicking away and the light flashing. There is no CPU activity I can see in Task Manager, but Resource View shows the hard drive activity I can hear.

If I open AVG Free, it stops. Is AVG doing something in the background?

hi if it's vista it's supa-fetching/defragging/ vistaing in the background it stops because you opened a program, this is just a possibility of course.

Resident Shield disabled, see if that is the culprit. I can live without it if it's going to annoy me and wear my hard drive out.

Thanks, I'll watch for that.

click here stick everything on 'safe' and maybe turn off vista de-frag, and use a third party one click here

It was AVG Resident Shield, I've disabled it now.
