    I was searching around this forum for a possible cause of heavy disk activity in Vista .. when there were few processes running .. and causing "program not responding" errors when programs were launched.

    I couldn't find any references in this forum but I did find this blog which might help others who are listening to a constant access of disk (as though indexing is going on)..

    I disabled SuperFetch and Windows Search.

    My disk is now much quieter.
