If I navigated to other sites, the hard drive continued thrashing, but closing Chrome altogether instantly silenced the hard drive. If I go to www.microsoft.com using IE or Firefox, the hard drive remains idle. I've opened Chrome several times over the last few hours and hard drive thrashing is now predictable. Anyone else see this happening? Anyone know why it would?"
