    Hi Peeps! (It technically is still easter time)
    I was running a RAIO0 and ended up dropping that rig to go with a 10krpm baracuta drive because I was having the same problem as I'm about to explain to you now...

    For whatever reason when you go to processes explorer constantly is counting "Page Faults" and is always 1 or 2 in PF Delta. I did a little research on that but from what I found it seemed to be more along the lines for NT Server. Anyway if I let my computer run (which I normally do), for days at a time the count gets ridiculously high. When I checked just before reboot I was up at 4million mark. So I rebooted and ran "HijackThis", Also I am running AVG (which runs on a nightly basis) and I have nothing in any of the logs. This is a pretty fresh install of xp - maybe 2 weeks old like I said I dropped the RAID0 setup because I thought that maybe a drive was going, now it doesn't seem like thats the case.

    Any help would greatly be appreciated, I'm tired of watching the reflection of the blue harddrive light off of the wall.
