    I'm inclined to think my hard drive is on the way out. 5 years old and about due to fail...
    I'm running ActiveSmart wich says it's all ok,but my gut instinct says otherwise.

    Is there any utility anyone has found that can actually show a graphical map of bad sectors for Vista ?
    It appears bad blocks are hidden unlike the old days.

    heh.. I look at HDDScan and it seemed good until I searched for reviews which said it was malware...
    We all know the type - install our product and it will fix everything and never ever let you uninstall it. :cool:

    Type hdd scan trojan into Google :cool:

    I didn't think it was worth the risk regardless of it being hddscan or hdd scan (with space)

    I'll install it on a work pc instead :D
