hi there,

I've acquired a new pc. It has pretty nice specs altough the Disk usage in the Task manager is at 100% very often. I have done a few things like adjusting virtual memory etc. but with not a lot of effect.

Please help me. I would like to know if this has any bad influence on the HDD or not and how can i fix it?

Where and how are you seeing this 100% disk usage, a screen shot would help?
