Drive Polling?

  1. OK, first salute to TS (Howard H, Julio, et al).

    Since my last issue in '07, I have new gear. New HP slimline 3300 w/Anthlon 64 desktop (April 08) and a new HP laptop with same processor November 07). Both are connected via a Linksys wireless G router as both units are wireless. Running via DSL.

    As of about 10 days ago, I am now experiencing a 1 second or so interval polling of the hard drive on the desktop. I went to taskmanager and tried stopping services one at a time to see if I could catch what it was to no avail. There were a few services that shut down several others at once, and some can't close. I don't recall any new programs that changes anything.

    I use AVG free AV + AVG AntiSpyware + ZoneArlm firewall.

    Weekly, I run following (per previous TS recommendations):

    Spybot
    Ad-Aware 2007
    Spyware Blaster
    Cccleaner


    It's not catching anything that changes what's happening. Any suggestions? Thanks for your time.
