This is really strange as there was no file transfer or disk writing going on at the time so I have no idea why this is happening. This probably isn't malware because I already had a discussion about malware in the malware section of bleeping computer, and they said I was clean and to come here.

 

I will upload two images for viewing to see what might be going on, but I understand this isn't full evidence for a problem, however, I can say that this is not uncommon to see, and seems to rapidly fluctuate at times...

If you sort the Disk Column you should be able to see the application that is using the disk.  Normally this is RAM related, but it doesn't look like that is your issue since your RAM usage is low.

Yes I know and it seems service host is the top on the first photo. I posted a reply on malware and virus logs about a rootkit detected by GMER. That may be it...

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/628386/gmer-detected-a-rootkit/ , you are being assisted in your malware topic.

 

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic pending outcome of your malware topic.
