comment Windows XP keeps writing on disk (clock ticking)
Thanks harry, but what makes you so sure it's a disk issue? AFAIK there haven't been any diagnostic supports for this so far, or were they?

Installed SpeedFan but the short test shows no errors. Not sure how I can take any useful info out of this. Please see my updated question.

From which diagnostic output you conclude that my harddisk is going to fail? That's all still just a speculation. I need solid diagnosis to confirm this.

We can assume flash is almost everywhere today. Who doesn't watch youtube nowadays?

Tried it but this actually seems as a big challenge, which renders this unusable for me (unless someone more capable will recommend filter for me).

Thanks harry, I tried CrystalDiskInfo, it shows some errors but at the same time it shows "Health status: good". What a contradiction? Please see my updated question.

Strange. When I tried it but cannot load any filter. I hover mouse over the menu Filter > Load Filter but no submenu pops up. And it should because there is a right arrow suggesting so.

Thank you, I will give it a try. Where can I find such thing?

comment Windows XP keeps writing on disk (clock ticking)
There are like 6 of them now, but now the ticking is not very strong (not every second). Nothing changes by ticking/unticking - the list stays the same all the time. My XP user is called "Tomas" not admin but has administrative rights.

comment Can't copy/paste because of ending some processes
Of course this will work, even our secretary would be able to figure this out. Fixing everything by restart is not a solution. This way I would keep restarting all day long.

Harry, no! But I am the only user using that computer. When I check it, nothing changes (no processes are added to the list).

Unfortunatelly this wasn't any useful. It seems to me that ProcessExplorer doesn't show anything which wasn't shown by the Task Manager. And neither of them is able to see those "HDD ticks" in the stats.

harry, please read my question carefully: "When I look to the task manager and add colums for read/written I/O bytes, no increments are observed". And regarding the disk firmware, please read the part after "EDIT". It happens only after certain load of the system.

This question has a lot to do with networking in general - IPs, DNS reverse and MX, whoises ..
