Hard disk always running

Hello. A week ago my hard disk has begin to always running. So i try to find a solution. First i've formatted and for two days always is ok. but now hd has begin to run again.. I have stopped windows search service and it's seem to go well. is there a solution that not involved stopping windows search service? my pc seems slow and sometimes i have to reset. i've checked for virus and there are no weird process in background. i think that perhaps is ccleaner with ccenhancer: perhaps it have cleaned some cache and pc is now rebuilding this cache.
