    Disk and processor loaded at 100℅ while laptop is idle


    Hello, I again turn to you with the problem of disk overload shows 100% when the laptop is idle and from the network everything is fine without a charger. And this is what I found in the task manager I attach a photo. "System" and a few other processes for example, the disk defragmentation service host are overloading the disk. I also turned off the Internet, checked for viruses and turned off the antivirus itself. Everything was OK. Please help me understand what is the problem. Thanks for the answer!

    :)

    Laptop idles at 70-100%

    It's not the disk, it's the CPU that idles like that.

    The only ''fix'' is to force the CPU to 50% max in advanced power settings, but that's kind of pointless as I'm leaving half of my CPU's potential unused.

    Windows 10 100% Disk Usage Nightmare

    Andre,

    I followed your steps exactly, except for 2 that I was unable to complete.

    1.) I could not change the processor idle setting. This was no option pertaining to processor idle. The options listed were Minimum Processor State, System Cooling Policy, & Maximum Processor State.

    2.) I created a new user account and gave it administrator privileges, however I could not delete the original account, which was the only account on the computer prior to this and the one that was created when this computer was new.

    During the process of following your steps, I lost use of the "2 finger scroll gesture" on the touchpad. Also, I opened up Excel and the disk quickly spiked to 99% and then quickly dropped back down close to 0%. I will log on tomorrow and try opening and
    closing several different apps to see the affects on the disk.

    Thanks,

    Nate
