You may also try the following as well:
1. Open my computer
2. Right click your hard drive icon and select properties.
3. At the bottom of the window you'll see "Allow indexing service to index this disk for faster searches," uncheck this and click O.K. (If you have more than one hard disk and/or partitions, do this for all of them.)
4. A new window will pop up. Select Apply to all folders and subfolders. It may take some time for the process to complete. But in the end you will enjoy comparatively faster performance and eliminate disk crunching.
Hope the above helps.
