Posted 29 November 2013 - 08:32 PM

Usually I'm pretty good about how to track down issues with windows / what is causing them. But recently windows 8 has thrown a serious kink into my tech skills. I'm not certain what is causing my disk to constantly run all the time. Process Explorer is claiming the system itself is writing almost a meg every 5 seconds. (other procs are within reasonable and expected margins). 

I've recently uninstalled F-Security and for the time being have most everything I can think of disabled. DDS Log:

Any help would be appreciated.
