My computer keeps loading something. How can I find out what my computer is loading.

There is a light on my computer that starts blinking when its loading something. When no programs are open and there are no windows, the light stops blinking. Recently this light keeps on blinking for no reason. Even when there are no programs in use. How can I find out what my computer is loading?

google process explorer its by system internals and distributed from the M$ site. theres the i/o window that tells you what program is using the hdd at that time

Tinman43:

also, if this is xp, start run msconfig, startup tab, just google each process name, to find out what it is

Zzzigggy:

Rick:

ctrl-alt-delete to find out

Va-wolf:

Sometimes when your computer is idle it moves files around to speed up your hard drive. Kind of like defragmenting

Lady Jarhead:

If you need to know exactly what's running in the background of your Windows, try these cool free tools/plugins from ProcessLibrary.com.

Aquarius the Brett:

In Task Manager you can pop the little processes if you want to see what they do! (very dangerous practice) Just select CTRL ALT DEL at the same time. And select the Processes TAB in Task Manager.
