Noticed that my hard drive churning away even when computer on hibernate mode. Looking at thr DNS Cache on the firewall receiving continual DNS hits from various sites, one imparticular is iplaykdms28.telhc.bbc.co.uk which is repeatedly working away despite hardly ever running iplayer.

Should DNS Cache be disabled?

Do you have a lot of programs downloaded from iPlayer and are you always connected to your broadband?

If so, it's likely that your PC is acting as a server for iPlayer because they use file sharing to speedily distribute their programs.
