    Win10 Disk usage to 100% freezing my computor


    So guys I am desperate with this problem.

    I have a dualboot machine Ubuntu + Windows 10. I use Windows for gamming and Media Edition (adobe apps). I Windows 10 was a free update from Win7 and I have it for months with no single problem (until now).

    Since last friday when I log in on Win 10 after maybe 2 to 6 minutes the Disk Usage of C: (my SSD drive) sundely goes to 100% making everything unresposive to the point that desktop wallapaper goes black and multiple pop-ups of crash apper leaving no choice but to unplug the pc.

    Since friday I was only able to use Windows 2 days (I though It was fixed until today)

    Now I have atemped a clean boot by disabling every app that boots and it still crashes.
    System Restore did nothing (I didnt install anything that could make that)
    SYSCHECK found no problems.
    I have remove Hibernation, SuperFetch, Virtual Memory, search, everything. Fun is that when it goes to 100% there is no app or sistem process consuming anything in the Resource and Task Manager.

    Now I have done this, I have created a non-admin user profile and when I log to the new user there is no problem.

    So whatever happens only happens in my main Admin user account.

    Can anyone please help me? Should I delete my user and transfer everything to a new one? I have never seen anything like it

    The fact that the problem doesn't occur in a different use account makes me think it has to do with an auto-starting process. I would use the Ccleaner Startup Manager (for the regular items) and Autoruns to check everything that's starting at boot. You could also try booting the Admin account in SAFE mode and see whether or not the problem occurs.

    Thanks for the reply, I install CC Cleaner and on Startup Manager I found the only 2 things that boot exclusive on my Admin account they were OneDrive and stuff of the HP Printer. I remove both, I unistalled HP Printer app and now the crash no longer happens.

    I believe maybe it was the HP updater that was screwing up my PC.

    So far so good, thanks
