  1. Disc usage pretty much always full


    Now I don't have a very powerful laptop but its not usually this bad. So my computer just struggles to open, run and do pretty much everything and doesn't even type sometimes because all my disc is being used by ''service host: local system 16'', ''software reporter tool'', ''antimalware service executable'' and ''system'' is there any way to make them use less disc space. My computer actually blue screened for the first time because I opened fortnite which has never happened before. Thanks to anyone who reads or gives advice.

    :)

  3. Disc Usage at 100%

    Hi Andre,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    I started going through your list of suggestions.

    I have switched off all background apps. I was horrified to see so many.

    I then disabled windows update.

    At that stage I thought I would check out disc usage on task manager.

    Disc activity had gone down dramatically and in the performance tag activity was very low, it spiked from time to time if I did something on the PC but the speed on all activity was back to normal.

    I thought I would leave things as they were and see if things stayed the same.

    No problems at all until this afternoon I was trying to look at a file via windows explorer and got the message "not responding". A quick look at task manager and disc activity is 100% again. Everything slows down. I close down some screens and the desk
    top turns black.

    The only way I can get a display up again is "alt" + "tab". The task bar has disappeared. I decided to reboot but the only way I can do that is with the on'/off switch.

    The PC reboots. I check that all the apps are still switched off and windows update is still disabled, Disc activity is still 100%.

    As I type this disc activity has suddenly dropped. it keeps spiking to 100% but then reverts back to about 12%.

    Is this normal or is there something else I should do.

    Back to 100% now. How do I find out what is actually happening, what activity is the disc doing?

    I am confused.

    Any suggestions?
