    High disk usage from system process and Windows Modules Installer


    Hello,Recently I have had a problem on my PC being stuck on 100% disk usage all the time.I'm not sure what the problem is though in task manager it shows System and Windows Modules Installer being at high percentages of usage. I have tried many things to fix this such as defragging the drive, running sfc commands checking for rootkits with MalwareBytes and even resetting my PC which still hasn't fixed the issue. The issue started when I was copying pictures from my old phone to my PC and it froze and I was met with a BSOD which said "kernel data inpage error". Help is much appreciat

    :)
