    windows 10 high disk usage %100

    When I first upgraded to windows 10 I had trouble with high cpu and disk usage. I disabled Superfetch, Windows Search, BITS and turned off notifications for tips about windows. Things calmed down and my computer worked fine. Last week I noticed a windows
    10 did a scheduled update and the high disk/CPU usage returned. I disabled windows search and superfetch again and the problem persists. With this update the menu to disable the "show me tips about windows" is no longer under the notifications menu. There
    has to be something else running in the background but I cannot seem to figure this one out. Does anyone have any other suggestions I should search for?

    High Disk Usage


    Hi all, I'm struggling with finding things to fix my high disk usage. I've spent many months searching the internet and doing all the listed suggestions like disabling SuperFetch, Windows Defender, Updating drivers, ect. and still I'm stuck with a high disk usage. Here's a screen shot I took immediately following a restart and opening up to a new Firefox window.

    I have noticed Service Host: Local System takes up quite a bit of disk usage and that if I close it and let it open back up all by itself then it immediately makes my disk usage drop into a much more manageable 40-60% usage range. But eventually after a while it maxes out again and I have to close it out again. It's an annoying step just to be able to use my computer.

    Also, I have noticed that after working with my mom's computer today, that her disk usage when no programs are running is only like 5%. Makes me wonder why my computer can have no programs running but my disk usage never drops below 30% and sits in the 40-60% range with spikes up over 75%.

    I honestly don't know enough about computers to do much more than I already have without causing major issues. BTW, just a couple weeks ago I had to do a Windows reinstall, not a complete reinstall, just the basic reinstall they allow you to do on Windows 10 where you still keep all your personal files. Ever since that a lot of times when I try to open a process like Run or Task Manager I'll get an error message that it can't open and then I do it again and it will open the second time.

    Here's a screenshot of my computer information so you can see what I'm working with here.

    Disable Superfetch permanently

    Hi,



    Certain programs can be disabled as long as it is on the services list. To isolate the issue, please provide the following information:



    • Is Superfetch available on the list of services for your Windows 10 device?
    • Is high CPU usage for Superfetch showing even before?
    • If no, when did the issue start to occur?


    Regards.
