First of all, you wont be banned. Though i cant promise people wont take the mick.

Ok, now to your statement...

My professional opinion is.. there arent really any noises coming from your hard drive, due to this site or otherwise.

I think someone is making you think there are noises, via your implant.

Like anybody needs test equipment to identify the sound of a noisy or failing hard drive with bad sectors. The sound is unmistakable. No, viruses, trojans and malware does not cause physical damage to a hard drive anyhow. It's more than likely your hard drive has bad sectors and is on it's last legs. How many hours has it done? Have you checked it for bad sectors and tried correcting them?

Nothing can be done to save a clicking hard drive...you can try but you'll just postpone the inevitable.

You can actually correct bad sectors on a drive. However, when it starts clicking badly it's only a matter of time before it totally fails, and it's best to just replace it. One of my disks has had an intermittent annoying click for over for years now :hahano:

There's a neat little app called Crystal Disk info which checks your hard disk health, and shows up any bad sectors. Either that or just type CHKDSK C: in command prompt.

Whats going to happen if I input "CHKDSK C: in command prompt"?

My hard drive wasn't making the noises before I logged back in to this forum for the first time in months.

Did it really happen when you visited my blog as it has never happened to me when I have visited it. Others maybe can give their view and opinion on the matter too.

It will scan your disk of course, CHKDSK is Microsoft’s hard disk scan and repair utility. It can only repair any bad sectors if it's software related though (Logical Failure). If it's hardware related, i.e physical wear and tear (Mechanical Failure) it will inevitably fail at some point. If it's clicking badly then it's time to replace your hard disk. You can easily clone your existing OS by using AOMEI Backupper, which for me is the best free software cloning/backup tool around.

If you're getting strange clicking noises then it's almost certainly mechanical failure, usually it's a faulty read-write head as a result of normal wear and tear. There's no way any malware or virus can cause mechanical failure of a hard disk. Viruses/malware can only cause Logical Failure.

The best thing to do is install a hard disk health monitoring utility, because running a scan with CHKDSK can sometimes take hours, depending on the size of your hard disk of course.

I use Crystal Disk Info, a powerful analysis tool that gives you an instant read out of your hard disk health, and lots of other helpful info at a glance.

Thanks for the advice. However, the light comes on too. So I'm still thinking that it is remote access.
