    100% Disk usage when downloading or updating.


    I bought my pc less than a month ago, and i have an issue with my disk usage shooting up to 100% and staying there when downloading or updating any program, including windows updates. I can run games at max performance without a problem. The problem seems unique because ive looked everywhere online for help, I have tried disabling SysMain and Windows search, that does help. Its hard to detect what the problem is because i can only look for the issue and try to resolve it when im downloading or updating, but this is hard seeing as the disk usage causes my pc to run terribly slow. a 80mb update can take as long as 10 minutes, even tho an internet test says i have 300mb/s+. Also like i said, any online games run perfectly. Ive already updated all my windows updates, and used easydriver to update all the drivers. Was just trying to see if anybody has had this issue/bug and any other advice on trying to resolve it without having to download any random programs.

    :)

  2. 100% disk usage

    The most common cause of 100% disk usage appears to be Superfetch and Prefetch, but there are also other causes. You can try disabling both these features and see if it helps.

    This article provides steps to disable prefecth and superfetch:

  4. 100% Disk usage when downloading or updating.

    100% disk usage.

    Summer has ended and my girlfriend booted her school laptop for the first time in months, only for it to be so unbearably slow that it took several minutes to log in. She handed it to me and said "fix it"... that was 3 days ago and now I am here to humbly
    ask the community what is going on with this GD laptop.

    It boots and task manager reports 100%CPU usage, it then lags for several seconds and displays 100%disk usage with CPU usage bouncing between 30-60%.

    If you leave it alone with task manager running it will eventually quiet down to a reasonable 0-5% disk usage, but doing ANYTHING causes it to bounce right back to 100%.

    I have tried EVERYTHING.

    • disable superfetch.
    • disable microsoft search.
    • disable updates and suggestive tips.
    • updated to the most current version of microsoft. (it hadn't been updated since 2018 when she bought it.)
    • reconfigured AHCI PCIE.
    • changed energy options.
    • disabled indexing.
    • reset the virtual memory.
    • ran disk defragment and disabled all scheduling.
    • updated all drivers.
    • deleted google chrome.
    • Disabled all services that weren't microsoft services and disabled all startup programs (clean boot).
    Still no change in the disk usage.

    Its an HP Laptop model 15-bw0xx with Windows 10 home edition version 10.0.18362

    after messing with it this long im considering replacing the HDD with an SSD but I fear that it wont fix the issue.
