I'm new to the site so HELLO EVERYONE! I look forward to getting to know you - and hopefully finding someone who can help me with technical matters.
I am concerned that after booting my pc the hardisk (not the cooling fan) chunders away as though it is continuously being read or written to. Does this indicate that there is something 'potentially sinister' running in the background and if so how might I establish what it might be?
Some years ago Ihad a similar problem which turned out to be BSkyB using my pc (and internet bandwidth!) to distribute files to other users!! That's not the problem this time - but I suspect it could be something similar!
Any help or tips about how to check things out would be greatly appreciated!
