Noisey hard drive until connected to the internet

I have a Win2k Pro  PC networked to a Win2K Pro server, the server is running Winroute Pro providing internet sharing and DHCP. The server has recently become noisey because the HD is constantly being accessed for a fraction of a second so it chunters. In Task Manager I can see that it is Winroute using 3% or more of the resourses on and off. This all stops if I connect to the internet (direct from the Win2k PC). Is it because Winroute is looking for the DNS?

Its probably because Winroute is just performing its normal operations. Instead of Winroute you could also consider using Internet Connection Sharing for the same result.
