My hard drive is working heavily even though I have no programs or windows open.. resource manager shows "system" is doing it, pretty vague.

Yeh, Sounds like indexing.

Have you got Windows Defender installed? My XP setup every now and then was thrashing the hard drive once the computer was left for a while, It turned up to be Windows Defender scanning the hard drive.

If you're running Vista it's almost certain to be the indexing. I get the same thing when I boot up, hard drive goes nuts for about five minutes. It's a good thng!
