  1. 100% Disk for minutes after Startup


    My laptop, when it boots up, is very slow.
    Looking at Task Manager, DISK is at 100% for a very long time.

    Is this normal?

    No single process is dominating usage and the top task changes over time.
    If it will help, I'll record the task using the most the next time I start up.

    Almost all apps are disabled in startup...just hardware and security apps are enabled

    I have a tower too and this isn't a problem....I'm able to start working within 15 seconds of booting up.

    Ideads?

    :)

  2. 100% disk usage on boot up for at least 5 to 10 minutes

    Hi there, I did a clean boot as you suggested and the boot up time became considerably longer and although disk usage was 100%, this was only for a minute or so. The program at the top of the disk utilisation list this time though was service host:superfetch.

    However I then didn't disable anything in the services tab but disabled all the programs in the startup tab and restarted. This resulted in a very speedy boot up AND there was no 100% disk utilisation. I've done this several times enabling a couple of programs
    on startup and the disk utilisation is no longer 100%.

    It appears therefore as though it was some kind of conflict in the startup programs that was causing the 100% disk utilisation.

    Thanks very much for your assistance.

    Disk is always at 100%

    Hi Richard,

    Some bugs or disk drive errors may cause high disk utilization. If your task manager shows 100% disk utilization, you may need to optimize Windows by following these troubleshooting methods:

    Disable Windows Search

    Some bug in Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 causes some "search loop" that causes maximum utilization of your disk. To disable
    Windows Search, kindly follow these steps:

    • Press Windows + R to open Run.
    • Type services.msc and press Enter.
    • Scroll down to find Windows Search, right-click it, and select
      Properties.
    • Change the Startup type to Disabled and save the changes.

    Disable Superfetch Service

    Superfetch service has been identified as a possible cause of 100% disk utilization on Windows 10. To disable Superfetch service, kindly follow these steps:

    • Press Windows + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type net.exe stop superfetch and press Enter.
    • Wait for a minute for the changes to apply and close the Command Prompt.

    Let us know how things goes.

    Regards.
