Which scans did you do?

The only thing I saw you did was look at the smart data.

That's a good question warwagon...

Did you just check the status or run the extended checks that check the drive from top to bottom? The checks should take a long time to complete.

Edit- You beat me to it. That should eliminate the drive then.

Still leaves my question about possible infections. I had a rootkit recently that got on my machine somehow and it behaved like this.

The SeaTools DOS long test took about an hour or more. Don't remember. I started it and went back into town. When I came back a couple hours later it was finished.
