High disk activity

Recommended Posts

Hello ! After I downloaded a virus and got infected I asked for help in a virus thread . After clearing the virus out the problem somehow persisted and the problem is : everytime I run an application like Word or an installer or even booting up my laptop .. that application starts using maximum disk activity   . Before we cleared the virus , the disk was always in 100% activity. Now in  idle is at 5-7 %.

Hi @gabipoem

Let me get some new log files please to see if I can see what's going on.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.
You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply as well.
