HDD access LED continually lit

This LED is always on, used ALT/CTL/DEL but don't see any task active. How can I find what is causing this. I did note a general slowing down in the computer, particularly when activation WORD.

Do you have Office installed?

It has a little programe called (i think) fastfind - look in Start>programs>startup

if you see anythink in there that looks like that - just delete it

Have you considered the possibility of a trojan?

Spyware is usually given away by a constant HHD activity, have you noticed a performance drop?
