Hard disk hunts for 10 minutes on boot up
Every time I boot up or wake up from Sleep mode my hard disk hunts for about 10 minutes probably updating files. This seriously slows down my system.
I use the Microsoft virus checker, and the Microsoft Backup utility.
Could it be one of these, or some other software, and if so how can I locate it and then stop it?

1. The msmpeng.exe is either MSE or Defender. I doubt that this is the culprit - but you never know.
2. The perfmon.exe is for the reliability and performance monitor. That could write a lot of data to disk. You may check the event viewer and the performance monitor (via Start > right click on Computer > Manage) whether there are a lot of entries in a short period of time.
3. For the search index, you may want to change the indexing options - See here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Improve-Windows-searches-using-the-index-frequently-asked-questions
This would be my first suspect.
Any of the above can be the culprit. It will take a bit of analysis.
