Hey guys I had an old laptop running XP Pro. A couple of weeks ago, every time I would connect to the internet via DSL or wireless, the hard drive light would come on - as if it were writing something to the hard drive. It would cause IE to run slower than dial-up. I looked in task manager and although the CPU usage was high, there didn't seem to be a process listed that was using it. I used LavaSoft Adaware to scan on a regular basis as well as Norton 2005. I eventually gave up and bought a new laptop (Vista Home), which now has the same problem. It is obviously related to something that I copied over to the new computer from the old computer. But the things is, Norton Internet security isn't picking up a virus. I used it to scan everything before copying it on to the new computer. Has anyone heard of such a thing or had the same problem? I'd much rather be able to find and remove the problem rather than restore.

Thanks!

Try using Kaspersky or NOD32 anti-virus. They aren't free, but I'm pretty sure they have trial versions which you can use for a limited time--enough for you to scan and find any malicious software on your computer. Addtionally, try using Mozilla Firefox as opposed to IE.

Better try some other anti virus that can detect viruses.. i don't think that norton will help your system in any way.i'm using Mcafee and its good for my lap top.. but that will delete the virus files automatically without your permission thats the issue. Confused
