Hey gang!
I've tried several forums in relation to this problem but nobody has responded and I hope that someone here might know what's going on. I'll post a copy of my message and info below.

About a week ago this started. Whenever I browse the internet whether with Firefox or IE, my hard drive will start thrashing endlessly and it will do this for about 3-5 minutes before it actually connects to the page. Once the activity stops the page loads. I tried running a full scan with Bitdefender, Spybot, Hijackthis and it came up clean. Also tried defragging and disk checks, nothing. Nothing is set to auto update as I know this causes excess activity at times. It makes surfing impossible. It doesn't matter what page I visit either. If I go to Google it thrashes, if I click a link it thrashes. I haven't added anything to the system. I even tried to wipe out and reinstall firefox but it still does it. I'll attach a DDS log hopefully someone can give some assistance with this. Thanks in advance!

I uninstalled it a while ago. I ran that utility anyway but it didn't improve anything. Still grinding away.

No. Bitdefender was installed and running before this happened. It started doing this last week out of the blue. I'm at a complete loss.
