  1. Disk running at 100%


    Good day

    I read through a lot of discussions about above mentioned subject.


    I have a HP I5 7th gen laptop

    2GB nvidia 940mx

    8GB Ram

    1TB HDD

    Windows 10


    I have spent a lot of hours on trying to fix the 100% disk usage issue.

    From what i can remember i did the following:

    Check disk f

    Check disk r

    Net.exe stop diagtrack

    Net.exe stop superfetch

    Net.exe stop windows search

    Net.exe stop sysmain


    Uninstalled some games and programmes

    Unistalled skypewhich for some reason appeared on my system, logged in etc

    Uninstalled chrome


    Restarted and defragged disk

    Set power options to high performance

    Disabled windows defender right after i ran a virus scan

    Reset virtual memory

    Updated windows and drivers

    Changed PCI Firmware Device Parameters\Interrupt Management\MessageSignaledInterruptProperties

    Changed from 1 to 0


    Ran a program to check hard drive health.


    Even elevated the laptop for more ventilation

    But still no luck. Some of the things i tried i can't even remember


    Had this laptop for 2 years now. Always keeping it clean and making sure its dust free. Most of the time.


    I have no idea what more i can do


    If anyone know anything about the solution, sharing your knowledge will be much appreciated

    :)

  2. Disk Usage at 100% with nothing running

    My PC is running Windows 10 with the latest updates but has suddenly become unusable with disk usage staying at 100% even with nothing running and just the same processes listed in Task Manager as before the problems
    started. I've tried a few suggestions found in online forums - disabling Windows Search and Superfetch, adjusting page file size, etc. but nothing has done the trick yet. I don't have any outside anti-virus software installed. I read about the potential MSI
    issue but don't have IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers listed in the Device Manager. Finally, it seems to boot up normally and will have periods where the disk usage drops and it's usable but those moments are brief and it inevitably goes back up to 100% usage.

    Clean install, disk usage at 100%

    I've seen that article. and I am in fact not running that driver. I followed the steps and it does not appear in the list.

    <snip>

    In the Task Manager, under Performance tab, the disk utilization reaches to 100% due to which system became lagging and unresponsive. It started freezing in few moments and this keeps happening until disk usage reduces from 100%.

    Control panel > Power Options > Edit Plan Settings > Change Advanced Power Settings > Processor Power Management > Maximum Processor state.

    Also, once I start Chrome 64, it uses lots of cpu and ram to do absolutely nothing.

    give you an option to install, or NOT, "additional" programs. 99.9% of the time you don't want to let them be installed. For example, when you install Adobe Player you are given the option of installing 2 additional "free trial" programs: Potentially Unwanted
    Programs: MacAfee Security Scan and MacAfee Safe Connect. The option to install is turned on, you have to manually turn it off. Those are PUP's. If you click "OK"/"Next" without paying attention you get the 2 "extra" programs.
