I wish to thank everyone for their suggestions.

It turns out it was windows doing routine house cleaning. optimizeing files when system was idle.

Actually I thought that lil task had been done away with after 98SE.

Since Proces Guard was installed and monitoring, it alerted on it. As it hadn't been run since I had locked the service. Normal behavior.

Now I did have this windows service disabled but recently did a restore and apparently those setings weren't saved and transfered.

Thanks to Gavin at wilderes security forum, he reminded me that TweakUI would disable this behavior. Located under the General tab all the way to the bottom of options. For general reference.

Once again thanks for your interest and help.
