    In the first two screenshots we can see that AVG is scanning, that can explain it... the "system" process on the other hand can be something else but can translate in the AVG scanner itself or even Win Defender (this one should be set to off if you use AVG).

    The Resource Monitor (resmon.exe) might be a good thing to check. In the Disk Activity section, it shows real time disk activity and can be filtered by such a thing as System, or whatever is showing the most activity. If you watch it for a while, you might pick up something.

    Make sure and close sections you don't need so you can see more at once.

    I tried running process explorer in safe mode but I couldn't. When I run it in ordinary mode I open it from the folder that it was put in when I originally downloaded it i.e. it's not installed

    How full is your HDD? When you get close to full the system will badly fragment files and thrash the disk trying to find all the pieces.

Disk Management: how to bring a disk offline?
Is it still possible to bring a disk offline using Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) in Windows 8 the same way it was possible in Windows 7 or is using Diskpart.exe the only way?
