I Use Windows Live Hotmail for email. I recently upgraded to Windows Live Skydrive but don't even know what that is. My email account is at msn.com (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I have had this account for over 10 years because I need to keep the msn address.
This is a Dell Dimension 8400 running XP SP3. I keep the Windows security updates current and it's set to auto update.
I use IE 8.0 primarily for browsing, but also have FireFox installed and use it occasionally.
I have the full-suite Mcafee SecurityCenter (provided free with Comcast cable internet) installed and fully armed. I just ran a sweep that turned up nothing.
I have Webroot SpySweeper (provided free with MSN) set up with the default shields turned on. I just ran a scan that turned up nothing.
I have Advanced System Care Pro on subscription and just ran a deep scan that turned up nothing.
For about two months or so I have noticed my hard drive is occasionally running hard (it's noisy) when I am not doing anything that should be running the HD. I have tried looking at the processes running with Task Manager but don't see anything out of the ordinary there.
Thanks for reading. I am looking for advice.
