    100% disk usage.

    As the title says my pc is bugged with the 100% disk usage issue.

    The things I've tried so far are:
    1. Disable BITS, Superfetch and Windows search services. Although BITS seems to gets enabled back on its own after a while.
    2. Performed a chkdsk /f/r to fix the system errors.
    3. Switched windows updates from automatic to manual (not sure if that helps much).

    I've read through some other threads but could not find the correct solution. Is there something else that I'm missing which could possibly fix the issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated...
