Hi,
threads merged to save confusion plus you won't get an answer any faster.

Have you checked the Task manager to see what is actually running and using the HDD so? You can also use the Task manager to stop processes.
Does it still do the same thing in Safe mode?

Try installing and running this app (in safe mode if need be)

I'm never sure, when I read one of these, if the OP means actually "usage" (high I/Os) or consumption (no free space).
