  1. Windows always at 100% disk usage after update to 2004.


    It has been about 4 days now. I am unable to use windows on my laptop. There are always stalled browsers/apps, basically whenever I try to do anything, I have to wait for a couple minutes for a responseeven opening search. I have tried running disk cleanup too, didn't really help at all. Restarting takes a good 10-15 minutes of time. I have 2TB HDD i5 7th gen 16GB RAM. These are not at all bad specsapart from the HDD, I have been running windows smoothly until the update hit me. Please help me resolve this issue.

    :)

    The most common cause of 100% disk usage appears to be Superfetch and Prefetch, but there are also other causes. You can try disabling both these features and see if it helps.

    This article provides steps to disable prefecth and superfetch:

    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.
