Default Hard drive thrashing - Windows XP Home

I've recently installed Windows XP Home on a partitioned hard drive.
The C: Drive (which contains the operating system) is about 10GB, and
the D: Drive is about 18GB. I have the most horrendous case of hard
drive thrashing that I've ever come across. It's particularly bad
whenever I open up an Internet Explorer 8 webpage, even if that page
is simply sitting idle. I confirmed this when I downloaded and ran
"Process Explorer". I don't have Norton installed on my system, and
I've defragged both my C: and D: Drives, as well as cleaning out all
temp folders.
I recently followed these instructions:


But still this problem of thrashing continues. It's got so bad my
system freezes (or comes very close to it). Please help!
