Window 7 Constant Hard Drive Activity - Computer Slow to Respond
Every time I restart Windows 7 and after logging in, the hard drive light comes on indicating continuing constant disk activity. The hard drive light is on solidly (no blinking). This condition persists for 10 - 15 minutes during which time all applications are extremely slow to respond.
I have tried pausing the search indexer and have also tried pausing my anti-virus software (Kaspersky Internet Security 2013). Neither of these appear to have any effect.
Once the constant hard drive activity has completed, the system operates normally, however I would much prefer to begin using the system soon after startup without having to wait for whatever is causing the hard drive activity to complete..
I have looked at Windows Task Manager and find no applications running other than THX True Studio PC by Creative Systems. Under task Manager processes, "System Idle Process" is shown with 95% - 98% CPU usage.
Many thanks in advance for any suggestions about how to track down what is happening and potentiall fix!
