hey i was just looking at this and you said nav update got disabled a lot of viruses can do this as for the drive going mad it could be writing changing things - deleting things

performance would practically disappear.could cause overheating and make cpu go full load all the time.Somtimes formatting doesnt allways get rid of it

the fan could have been on the way out anyway no telling

i would do a full virus scan to make sure or go to nav site for a online scan

i know this happened too me once lost about 2000files they were all still in the system (the titles) but nothing in them the virus had deleted the lot. :(
