    today I noticed something strange which I would like to understand.

    Every 150 seconds the "System" (ntoskrnl) process is doing something in "C:\Windows\System32\config\DRIVERS"
    It is reading at exactly 2.1mb/s for a couple of seconds as seen in the taskmgr.
    I would appreciate if someone could tell me what is causing that or how I could track the cause down.

    This just happens on one of my PCs which is driving me a bit crazy.

    Maybe someone notices the same (just sort by disk usage in taskmgr and you would notice it in a couple of minutes)

    I made some screenshots to help you understand. :)
