The more you use your pc, the less this happens. and the faster Vista becomes.

This may not be the case but its the first thing that should come to your mind.

What requires ALOT of reading and writing?...The answere is HDD Defragmentation.

This may not be the case but system sheduled Defrags could be the issue.

For example: If you use WMP a lot but never WMC, SuperFetch will make WMP run faster and WMC run slower.

The indexing service, on the other hand, is a horrible feature. (Again, at least for me) It's used to "pre-search" all files in the indexing options so that when you search for them the search is "faster." Technically its not faster as it has already been searched before. It's like cache basically. Personally I think it's one of the reason's why Vista is considered a "resource hog." The indexing service causes a lot of the CPU's load and disabling it can result to a significant increase in performance.
Thanks for this!
