My pc's hard disk starts working over time every 6 mins and when it does so it works for a long time with the light always on. The problem is that it slows the pc down heavily. I am also preoccupied with the fact that it can burn itself out.

My antivirus is updated but it does not report anything and I have Zonealarm installed as well.

Help me find a solution to this HEADACHE!

As you have up to date virus definitions, you may have spy ware

Download install and run Adaware
click here

When you run the program there is a globe icon in the top right corner, click on that to get the latest updates before running Adaware
