Hard Drive "Quiet" All of a Sudden?

I recently reinstalled Windows XP Pro, and when I used to scan my computer for spyware w/ ad-aware, it would go very zippy, and I could hear my harddrive grinding. Now, my harddrive barely purrs, but it takes SO MUCH LONGER to scan! What do I do?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
