That cylinder light is for HardDisk activity. How long has this been going? It may very well be a scheduled scan from one of the security software.

Click Start Menu - in search write "Resource Monitor" - switch to Disk tab - sort by Read column. Do this also for the Disk Activity part right below. Take a screenshot. Then sort the same parts with Write and take another screenshot. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

It doesn't look like the problem is disk activity, there is barely any activity in the screenshot. Only game related ones.

How much free space there is on C?

Try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
Also scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free just in case.

And please fill in System Specs as described in System Info - See Your System Specs.

It is supposed to read/write to some extent. It may be some other issue. What security software (Anti-virus etc) are you using?

Scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free just in case.

Also check Resource Monitor for CPU (sort both Processes and Services by CPU) and Memory (sort by Working Set) tabs.
