Hi all,

I'm having a major problem with my PC in that it just will NOT stop accessing it's hard drive.

I've had over 3 hours now of my hard drive thrashing away for no apparent reason.

Why would it being doing this and HOW can I make it stop as it's driving me absolutely crazy?

Think I sussed it out.

It was Google Desktop Search that was the problem. It was updating my index when it had an error and crashed when 99% complete on it's indexing. It seems to have got caught in some kind of loop/cycle because of this. As soon as I did a system restore to the point before the index started the thrashing of my hard drive stopped.
