    Just wondering- how many disks do you have in your PC?
    If you look at task manager, Performance, which disks are showing significant activity?
    I have one disk and these are the names of the processes

    I can get another keyboard and do a clean boot.
    Once I do the clean boot I take a screenshot of my task manager or processexplorer?

    Ok, it would be good to find a situation when you do not have this problem.
    Currently I would only guess that to be in Safe Mode. Try Safe Mode rather than a clean boot- it's also easer to set up, and more basic.

    Now, the names of those processes need research. A couple of them I've never seen before-- if you can find out anything about them- esp. the 4th and 5th - that would be helpful. The first is related to reports of various issues of resource use.

    There are quite a few threads about Service Host: Local System on this forum, so you could search it and see if anything helps.

    Please also try the suggestion first in my previous post.

    Here's another (from this forum):
    Turning off notifications SOLVED the disk-usage issue for me! Thank you very much!

    To solve the issue:

    1. Right click the start bar -> Click "Properties"
    2. Click "Customize" next to 'Notification Area:'
    3. Slide all bars to "Off" in the 'Notifications' category
    4. Finished!
    Others suggest disabling superfetch.

    However, I have the uneasy feeling these are fudges and don't address the real issue.

    What is your build number? (Windows key + R, winver)?

    I've finally noticed this in my own task manager (scroll down towards the bottom)

    I can only imagine this is something introduced more recently- that MS has given different instances of svchost different names, and expanded them like this.

    So there's a simpler way to monitor these than Process Explorer.

    Sorry for the late response. This is my build number and will do the safe boot later on today
