Background harddrive activity- what is it?!

  Wanderfly 23:33 12 Jan 05

Hi all, After I've been on the internet for about 4min my harddrive starts chugging away. I've got Norton Anti-virus so it could well be doing a live update, but it does it everytime! It sounds similar to running a disk defrag. Is there anyway of monitoring what's causing the activity?

if you have windows XP try right clicking the taskbar and select 'task manager/processes' look at the background processes running here maybe and see which ones are using all the 'cpu' & 'cpu time'

may help a bit to see what running.
