whats going on in the background?

Specs: Windows XP
Every day when I switch on computer for the first time the hard drive keeps going on and on for half an hour and I have to wait for every execution of a click of a button which is annoying.
I've installed process monitor to see whats going on, there is hundreds of entries under process name, some like:
there are also some scanning processes (PID 2836) even though my zone alarm scanning is switched off.
Some paths to this processes are:
c:\windows\system32\zonelabs\avsys\bases\base063c.avc or
c:\device\harddisk volume2
and many more
I think that this scanning is slowing my computer the most. What program is running the scan and how to stop it?

thank you

Post a hijackthis log in the proper forum.
Download it at this location if you want it.

Careful you don't download the wrong thing.
It's in small print were you click to download.

You don't have 2 anti-virus do you?

Exactly how many processes are running on your machine?

Press Ctrl-Alt-Del, click Task Manager, then look at the bottom left corner...how many processes are running?

In the first half an hour there is between 39-36 processes running
That scan is run by zonealarm even when scanning is switched off. I'll have to ask zonealarm support.
Thanks for all replies
