    do you have diskeeper? if u do then go to the set-it and forget-it settings and disable it. or if your using some other defragmenting program then you should find something similar that you will need to disable. the windows defragmenter doesnt have automatic settings that i know of...

    start>control pannel>scheduled Tasks. Maybe it is in there? if it is, right click and delete it should solve your problem

    lol isnt auto-defrag a good thing? set it to happen in the middle of the night lol and that way ur comp will stay fast w/o urass being yanked off if you were to defrag manually.

    This isn't about hardware. Windows XP is software.

    A question.... Why would you be using FAT32 with XP instead of NTFS?
    There are several key advantages.

    You can also check what's in your startup registry as well as the scheduled tasks. If you don't want to enter the registry manually, RegSeeker can help you out.

    Advantages:
    - You can handle large files better.
    - You can handle files larger than 4 gigs, if you have to.
    - It allows you to handle much bigger hand drives with much less lag.
    - It doesn&#39;t allow the OS to write to bad sectors on the hard disk, so you have less of a chance for data corruption.
    - It allows the user to use file system encryption. XP Professional allows you to encrypt files and/or directories for more security.
    - It&#39;s more stable.

    NTFS is also the default and simply allows for smoother usage of XP.

    I think you can just change the file system with damage if you type this into a run dialog box
    convert (specify drive) (specify filesystem)
    But, I&#39;ve never had to do it before
