It means your hard drive is constantly working.
Are you experiencing slow system speeds Away Days, for example does the pc take longer to boot, lagging on page loads etc, unusual pop ups etc?

Ok

Hello Away.

Try accessing the net with this method:

Turn on your computer and start tapping F8. A menu will appear in which you can go through the list by using the arrow keys. Choose "Safe Mode With Networking". If you can now access the net, click here to download the HijackThis Installer that will show us what programs are running on the computer. Run the program and choose "Do a system scan and save a logfile". Please copy and paste that log into this thread.
