    System slow down


    I experienced a series of BSOD on startup and shutdown and it took me a couple of days to find the cause and fix. However, now that I am not getting BSOD, my system is extremely sluggish. It is like if a huge process is constantly running in the background. Even pulling Task Manager is slow. Once in awhile I see "System Interrupts" go up to 60% of CPU utilization, but normally the overall CPU util is at 7%, and mem at 16%. Disk and Network are at 0%.


    I have done:


    Checkdsk

    mem scan

    Check all Win Updates are installed

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth
    DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup
    sfc /scannow

    Disable unnecessary startup apps

    My C:/ drive has about 25% free space

    I see no conflicts with drivers on Device Manager


    Frankly I can't think of anything else I can do, nor I find any other answers online. Are there any logs or files that could help the experts identify what may be going on or am I doomed to do a clean install?

    :)

    System slow down

    System slow down

    Two windows processes are slowing my desktop down to the point that I can't use it. Those are the TiWorker.exe (using my hard disk) and the backgroundtaskhost.exe (Using the ethernet). The system is completely paralyzed - I had to use the laptop to be able
    to look things up. This is running now since 2 days and I'm baffled, both processes seem to be windows system processes not applications that I would have control over. I rebooted the system multiple times, shut it down, even attempted to run a sfc /scannow
    - but since the system resources are almost completely used up by the other two processes this is almost not progressing at all.

    I'm at a complete loss and don't know how to get my desktop working again.

    Any suggestions? Hopefully something that doesn't involve wiping the disks!
