I am using Win7 UltimaTE

aTHLON 64bit 2200

3 GB

Since about two days ago my computer started hangining totally out of the blue, I can have one program or many at the time,It doesnt seem to be anything to do with what i am doing.
When it happens the hard drive is constantly being accessed and it last from anywhere from 5 to 10 mins and then everything is ok again.
If someone can help me with this i would be greatful.

I have also used AVG and got no Virii according to that

I am currently doing a SuperAntiSpyware Scan and will post the resluts.

Thanks

Steve

Assuming it is neither malware nor a process in Scheduled Tasks you can try the following:

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (disable everything from loading) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming process, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.

Are there any other scanners i could try if the spyware scan doesnt find anything.
Last night i watched the resource monitor and so many things were hitting the drive when it was happening,,is this normal ?
I never saw anything unusual on there but it went by too fast too see it sometimes.

And yeah that would take ages cos sometimes it takes a long time before that even happens.

You can post in the Am I Infected forum here and they'll help you determine if your system is infected.

I have posted in the Am I Infected forum and done everything that they mentioned.
It never resolved my problem, and they suggested that I re-post in this forum topic.

I hope that someone can finally help me resolved this problem


Thanks

I gave you my suggestion in the post above. It's up to you whether or not to follow those instructions.
