Writing about web page http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Filemon.html
My computer was going bonkers this morning, the hard disk thrashing like crazy.
I shut everything down and still appeared to have plenty of free memory, but I just couldn't tell what it was.
In comes Filemon, this handy utility from SysInternals shows you all of your disk activity and what program is causing the mayhem.
It turns out it was a virus scan that should have run at the weekend and got delayed for some reason :(
