Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

That's very normal if one has 3rd party AV & AM & whatever else monitoring operations and security operations. How does tree-climbing via explorer [the file manager], copy and paste, etc., work in Safe Mode?

I don't know how you could "see" if a hard drive is "stopping" and "stopping". That makes me think the platter motor stops spinning and then starts again. And the R/W head is controlled by a "stepper" motor that works by moving (stepping) to new locations, stopping, then stepping to the next location.

So exactly what symptoms are you noticing?

As Roland notes, there are many programs and services that might access the drive, including security scanners, Windows Update, and Windows Indexing. These are all normal activities.
