Do you have any third party applications that add functionality to the 
OS?  Anything that shows up in System Preferences, or which adds a new 
menu to the menubar?  

Or do you have a third-party utility installed that does maintenance 
automatically on a schedule?  

Or do you have Norton Utilities, or a Lexmark or HP print drive installed?

If you have any of these installed, uninstall them, restart, and see if 
things are better.
