Default Flickering Hard Disk Light


I shall take you at your word that you do not have any virus or spyware on your PC trying to connect to the internet, this would account for the "flickering" if you were infected.

You must now be aware that LW Basic and LW Pro are very HD intensive programs and, when in use, is constantly downloading and uploading files. However, when you initially start up LW it will count all the files in your shared folder along with some other preparatory functions, hence the flickering HD light.

So, basically, LW will count and prepare your shared files for uploading, connect you to the network via an ultrapeer and finally upload requested files. All this requires some sort of HD activity and all this happens before you can put your own request in for files you want to download.
