Hello,

I have a Dell destop running XP. My disk seems to be running constantly and I cannot get anything done. Is there a known virus causing this?

Possibly, and you could also be having a hard drive malfunction.

See if you can boot into safe mode to run chkdsk /r

Aside from the chkdks, run a virus/malware scan, and do a disk defrag.

If you have not re-installed Windows in a long time, may want to.

And make sure you have at least 1 gig of RAM in the system, 2+ is ideal for XP.
