You know the 'clicking' sound your HD make when a prog is loading? Well mine seems to be doing that for long periods although nothing is running (according to task manager).

I've done the virus, mal/spyware checks and found nothing.

Do you thing this is something to worry about?

Double click My Computer>right click C: drive and select properties

Now Click the tools Tab and select Error checking and tick both boxes

Restart computer and let it check for errors

It was in my case - can't remember whether it was you who helped me Woodchip, but I used TweakUI to disable "Optimise hard disk when idle". That was bugging me for about 3 years!
