  1. Windows New Updates Makes My PC Unresponsive By Keeping Harddrive Usage at 100%!!


    I am facing lot of difficulties since these updates have been released !!

    Since two days My Harddrive is running on 100% on Ethernet connection and it's nearly impossible to do any work on my PC. If I connect my PC with my mobile through hotspot as metered connection then harddrive acts normally.

    Even if I've changed the Ethernet connection as metered connection, but still it makes my PC unusable and harddive usage reach to 100% continuously.


    Kindly tell what should I do ?

    :)

  2. Windows 10, 100% disk usage

    Hi Eric,

    Sometimes your computer could run very slow even though you have only very few programs running. Since you're having issue with your 100% disk usage, it is always suggested that you keep your device drivers updated to eliminate the possibility of such problems.

    Let us walk you through some steps that may help us resolve your issue. Follow the steps below:

    Step 1:
    Update device drivers
    .


    This will help us remove/delete any corrupted data and issues with the PC hardware and make their operations work.

    Step 2: Disable Antivirus Software and Windows Defender.

    If you have installed antivirus or anti-malware programs such as Norton, Kaspersky, AVG, or Malwarebytes, it is suggested that you turn them off or disable them temporary to see if the disk usage could be back to normal. If the antivirus or anti-malware
    software is at fault, we suggest that you consult the software manufacturers to see if they can provide some help.

    Hope the above information helps.

  3. Windows 10 - 100% Disk Usage in Device Manager

    A concerning issue I am currently facing with my PC is the disk usage, where my PC is best described as lethargic during start up, and less commonly but evidently unresponsive afterwards. Upon checking the task manager, it informs me the disk usage is at
    100% - so obviously something is draining this feature. What isn't so obvious is what is causing this, despite the task manager alerting me to the numerous software which is causing it. I end the task for the notable issues, and the 100% warning still
    remains. This has happened to me over a year ago, and I did a restore and wiped everything. This fixed the issue for me temporarily, and the 100% disk usage came back to me within a few weeks. At the moment I
    have 1.2TB of the 1.81TB SSHD space free, and my computer specs are below (I don't know if this will be useful).


    Windows New Updates Makes My PC Unresponsive By Keeping Harddrive Usage at 100%!! 24e2a6f2-8df8-4416-bd42-fccd5ccc07ab.png


    I have searched online and I have found a guide which I have linked
    here
    . I have completed each and every step that the guide asks me, and I keep running into this 100% disk usage. For a run down, I have:

    • Disabled Windows Search
    • Disabled Super Fetch
    • Performed a Disk Check (Took 8 hours, did nothing!)
    • Reset Virtual Memory
    • Changed the settings in Google and Skype
    • Fix the "StorAHCI.sys driver"
    • Updated device drivers

    At this moment, I am stumped into what to try next. I am reluctant to restore everything off my machine again, as the issue came back to me within a few weeks. Any tips and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Many thanks,

    Chester
