Probably two or three times within an 8 hour period, my machine with Win98-SE on it goes into a mystirious spate of activity :
Firstly and most noticable the floppy drive makes a noise as if it was trying to be accessed
I can here my second HDD spin up as it is usually sleeping
then the main HDD sounds like its doing a defrag
then after about 2-3 mins it stops!
I have seen this happen even if I am not near the machine.
If it happens when I am working/playing, everything goes very sluggish even the mouse movement.
I have nothing in the task manager nor in startup. I have checked the taskmanager at the time it is doing it and nothing out of the ordnary exists.
Any ideas ?
