The 100% disk usage is being caused by Windows dumping memory to the disk and trying to fit it into too small a virtual space.
    Yes. on slow disks that could also cause problem.

    Win 10

    I'm working on a project that uses laptops for data collection. Laptop is not connected to a network and always powered and set to never sleep or shutdown. Under Win 7 it worked fine. Under Win 10 we get freezes anywhere from a few minutes to several weeks and must power cycle laptop to recover. Some machines were Win 10 upgrades, some new with Win 10. We have tried many of the suggestions on this forum and others with no success. We have reverted one machine to Win 7 with success but cost and hassle. We tried Win 10 IOT with success but expensive and hassle. We bought one laptop with Win 10 and made only change to never sleep or shut down. That machine freezes. No applications turned on or installed. We have tried laptops from several vendors with the same results. We have checked event logs. Often last events were hours before the frozen desktop clock. Nothing is indicated that we can use. Does any of this give anyone a clue? Does anyone know how to approach diagnosing the problem as opposed to try this or try that?

    Did you try disabling C-State in the BIOS?

    I spent literally months tracking this down on my PC. I fixed a freezing issue on my Win 10 desktop by updating my Netgear USB wifi drivers. The freeze would happen randomly 2-3 times a week while I was working.

    I realize that there are many possible causes for freezes or hard lockups, and by this freeze I am referring to a permanent one that requires a power off/reboot to resume. Symptoms: screen and mouse freezes, caps lock no longer functional on keyboard, etc. No black screen, or BSOD, no event logs either.

    My first suspects were RAM or video drivers. Ran memtest86 thoroughly, swapped RAM anyway. No improvement.

    Installed GPU and drivers from a different vendor. No improvement.

    Disabled audio device. No improvement.

    Removed security software and tested HDD's, ran sfc /scannow, everything else I could think of. No improvement.

    Uninstalled my Netgear wifi and tried a cheap $10 USB wifi adapter. No more freezes!

    Downloaded the latest version of Netgear drivers and installed that. All good again. No more freezes for several months now! It seems that the older version that I had been using was only certified for Windows 8. The updated version was Win 10 compatible.

    So it could be a bad driver that causes freeze state or reboots? I was thinking that also but I am not sure. I disable my C state to prove also, so far so good.

    I also switched my keyboard, mouse and audio device, because I think there was some kindo of problem with those drivers in Windows 10

    Sudden reboots without BSOD are mostly caused by HW, overheating and problems with power. Hard locks can also be caused by HW but also with malfunctioning drivers.

    Every 20 minutes - Freeze


    Background:

    I'm trying to fix a relative's computer. It is a ~6 year old, Dell 64-bit All-in-One with 4G RAM. Out of warranty. Came with Windows 7 but was upgraded to Windows 10. Being on a strict budget, it has been without any virus or malware protection for the last 2 years. It does not see heavy processing usage.

    About a month or two ago it started having slowness troubles and lost the internet connection to Comcast/Xfinity. I made the hour long trip and managed to get SUPERAntiSpyware to to load and cleaned over 3500 malware threats. I brought home and ran MalwareBytes which found another 250-plus problems. I also found many, many useless programs. Even with all that cleaning and many other efforts, I could not get to the Internet. I decided to wipe and reload Windows 10.

    Bingo! Internet. I updated and ran SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes. Cleaned more software out. Loaded AVAST! and Spybot (free programs). Accessed the Comcast/Xfinity email. Loaded Skype (a whole other story in continuing chapters), and Wordperfect 12 (all the software needed by the user). I also installed TeamViewer. After several days testing everything worked.

    Another trip and delivered the computer. Within 1 week it started freezing up every 20 minutes. The cursor moves but nothing else opens or closes. We have waited 10 minutes for it to come back. Nothing. Skype worked for a week than stopped and made noises about Windows Live (see above).

    Working from home, I've now disabled SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes from running all the time. Windows 10 reports all drivers are up-to-date. I tried to manually update some drivers but Windows 10 would not allow it. I checked for memory problems. I ran Disk Check and System File Checker. I disabled Windows Defender. I stopped almost everything that vaguely looked like it ran on a schedule. I've tried more things and have several times managed to go 60 or 90 minutes but it seems to revert to 20 minutes.

    I did notice today that CPU and Memory usage was usually quite high. Tomorrow I'll try playing with Virtual Memory / Pagefile as posted here.

    I'm open to literally anything someone will suggest.

    Help!

    Here's a SOLUTION to my Windows 10 Freezes:

    I use Google Chrome as my internet browser and it is the one that causes the freezes. So when the freeze occurs, I can move the mouse around, yet if I press the Start button or on the Taskbar or anything that's open on the screen, the computer would respond to the click VERY SLOWLY. For example, when the freeze happens, I press the Start button. 30 seconds later, the Start menu pops up.

    This is what I do to fix it: Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to go to the Task Manager. Click on Details tab. End all the chrome.exe tasks. Then I end explorer.exe task. Then after that, click File > Run new task. Type explorer and press OK. Then the computer will go back to normal. Re-open Google Chrome and everything is functioning again. Only down side is that all File Explorer windows that I had open will no longer be open, I'd have to re-open them if I need to or whatever. Stupid bug, and I hope it gets fixed.

    Still have 20 minute problem


    First: Not a chrome problem. I did not load it and I can not find evidence of it.

    Today I looked at Virtual Memory / Pagefile. I set the initial size at 6,144 MB and the maximum size at 18,432 MB.

    It was good for about an hour than locked up. Rebooted and locked up at 20 minutes.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    windows 10

    Greetings,

    I have made it a rule that I donít ever post in forum threads. But the instability of windows 10 for me and 85 pages of this thread and the complicated nature of this issue, I feel that what I have in my event viewer is important in sharing. if I have made an error in my judgment here please let me know and I will cease my dribble.

    I am a computer equipment technician by trade and not a software person. I have been experiencing the same freezing as everyone else in the list and have tried the following: (will append as i remember)

    changing my power profile,
    winsxs,
    turning off windows firewall
    turning off windows defender
    turning off windows update

    using a clean install, and anything else I canít remember after 2 weeks of trying things in this list.

    In the morning hours at 09/03/2017 0425 my computer froze. When I got on at 0830 I found that the 2 windows I had left open, the event viewer and a this webpage on page 11, I could not access but explorer would respond as well as my keyboard and mouse. In the event viewer, I discovered 14 errors of source sidebyside event ID 9, as well as error 33.

    I don't know if my information is something important enough to share, but i feel it might.

    I can provide my event view details upon request i just wanted to make sure that what i have is valid enough be for posting such a long list of data.

    Regards,
    seaeagle23

    As a side note, I play Morrowind and have been adding mod files to the game folder. I have been opening zip files with 7zip and coping them to the data file folder it is during this copying that my computer is freezing
