Well thanks for the tip. Ive never used resource monitor before. Funny how recently Ive found out about so many tools included with windows that I didnt even know existed. I'll try a fresh install of Comodo and see if that helps any.

If its making a lot of noise, it sounds like its dying. Check the speeds of your other drives, or replace that drive, and check the speed.

Chances are all drives would be suffering if it was SATA degrading, and plus that only occurs with sandy bridge chipsets. I don't think I have ever seen SATA ports degrade on their own.
