I recently bought an HP Pavilion AMD Phenom with 8GB RAM running Windows Vista. For a full 10 minutes, right after restart, my hard drive starts writing to a System Volume Information file, which is a very long file name that begins with "{". Is this normal activity? I've been searching the internet for days and days for information on this, to no avail. I keep running across folks talking about the lastalive1.dat, Search index, and Superfetch being possible culprits. Just yesterday, I downloaded HijackThis for the first time, to help me better analyze the situation. I apologize ahead of time if my etiquette sucks; I'm new to submitting these log files ... and I'm new to seeking forum help. I was curious about what "(file missing)" means in my HijackThis log. Oh yeah, I'm used to dealing with the quirks of XP, not Vista. Anyway, I'm gonna attach my HijackThis log.
