    This started an odd few days ago for no (apparent) reason...when using firefox and closing the browser mainly, the HD will load in a bit of a strangeyish fashion...I haven't ruled out the possiblility that it may just be getting faulty, but still..it loads at other times when it normally shouldn't load...

    I've run pretty much every possible check and come out clean, so...all there's left to it is come here once again with a log and see if something's odd has wormed it's way in =\

    My log...

    Log looks fine. Have you defragmented your hard drive lately? If not, you might want to try that.

    Defrag it more or less every night...I use diskeeper for that...

    Well, these random HD loadings still occur and I've still not figure out what causes it...bit doubtful really whether it's innocent or not, but since it's not really supposed to act like this, it makes me wonder...
