  1. Vista indexes hard drive contents during idle time to speed up searches... the hard drive activity is normal.

    Back up your registry, then look for references to AVG and delete them. Backing up the registry first allows you to restore it in case you delete the wrong keys and mess something else up.
  2. It also defrags bits of data here and there.

    All of this is supposed to happen during "afk" sessions, but not sure how well that timing works.
