"I did a disk defrag and it has stopped some.. does this mean anything?"

Has it completely gone or not?

Could it be your hard drive?

That'd make sense if it fixed the problem.

However I would be concerned about the future of a drive and buy a new one, imaging all the content across onto it.
Shouldn't be too expensive, if you're in the US I strongly recommend newegg.com from what I've heard (don't live there myself):
320GB for US$145.00 if you want a big drive
80GB for just over US$50 if you are looking for a smaller one.

if a defrag slowed the noise down then you may need more ram. (without hearing the sound i can't be sure) but your HD might be "thrashing" which means that the read head is having to travel across your drive too much to find stuff. this is usually caused by too little RAM
