  1. Disk Usage 100% with system as the major issue


    Lately my laptop slowed down even though I only opened file explorer. I checked my task manager and my disk usage was 100%. I've tried many ways that I found on the internet like checking disk C, update windows 10, stopping sysmain, disabling diagtrack, defrag, MSI, prefetch, etc. Still it didn't work. I checked the details of disk usage and it showed antimalware service executable on top of the list at the time I ran full scan with windows defender security. When i checked the detail, System appeared to be the major usage factor. Can you help me what's wrong with this and how can I fix this? Is it possible because of malware?

    100% disk usage and memory usage

    Hi,

    100% disk usage and memory usage can be caused by a software corruption, running application running on the background and malware or virus infection.

    For us to properly isolate the issue and provide an appropriate resolution, kindly answer the questions below:

    • Did the issue happen after installing the Fall Creators?
    • Did you receive any error messages?
    • Can you send us the screenshot of the Task Manager showing the 100% disk usage and memory usage?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    For isolation purposes, please perform a clean boot to see if the same issue will occur. Refer to this
    article for more information on how to perform a clean boot
    in Windows.

    Looking forward to your response.
