Hello there,
I have azone spybot and adware installed.
My operating system is Wins Me
I notice that at times when surfing the net my hardrive goes into orbit, well it sounds like it. Very fast then calms down after it has downloaded the page.
I discovered it was azone because i closed the programme and it did not do it again.
My question is - that whirling noise well it do damage to the hard drive in other words is it normal?
Every thing else is working just fine.
Thanks again for your help.
Regards Derek

An increasing, "winding up" speed is more lileley to be a fast CD reader revving up than the hard disk. That is more likley to be running all the time at a steady speed.

Why would Zonealarm be trying to read a CD?

Thank you for your helpful suggestion I dont think it is that as the cd in the computer is works 95 from which I use the' bookshelf' on the odd occasions as it has a world map included. Should I take it out and see what happens?

Gosh and golly you have solved the problem! No more noise emitting from the computer. Thank you so much, In the back of my mind I had a feeling that the computer was dying and I would have to replace it.
Thank you again.
