I am working on a sony vaio with vista that is taking about 8 minutes to boot and then after it boots the hd is constantly being accessed. I have run virus scans of all sorts but have come up with nothing. I have also stopped all the processes I could safely stop on startup.
Any ideas of why this is taking so long to boot or what is making the hd run constantly? I fear I have a virus or malware that is not showing up in scans.

Here is log from Highjack This.

Thanks in advance for any help.
