    OK not serious but at the moment my hard drive will not shut up, constant CPU usage between 3 and 6 percent accessing something. All I can see in the task manager is a little bit of avg and some system tasks. Im at a dead loss on this. I thought I had it sorted when I told the .net framework to sort its self out all in one go instead of using a background process but it has started again.

    Anyway any chance of you guys glancing over the hijack log.

    Thanks

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jqs.exe, the Java Quick Starter service can cause unnecessary disk access. Unless you use a lot of Java applications and want them to start as fast as possible, open services.msc (Start->Run->services.msc) and change its startup type to manual. This is a particularly annoying service and will re-enable itself everytime you update the Java Runtime Environment.

    I'd also disable the Java Update Scheduler (C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exe) and the installshield update service (C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\UpdateService\issch.exe) but then I prefer to take manual control of my updates rather than letting them happen automatically.
