    Brand new computer, experiencing high disk usage after 1 day.

    So I just got the computer via UPS yesterday. It came with a few small issues that I managed to fix, but I also tinkered around with some setting sin order to hopefully prolong the usage, and whatever. First I changed a few bios settings to make a 100% loud fan chill out. Then I changed a system setting to make windows updates not active. (Disabled and stopped.)

    From here the computer did fine. There was a forced windows update but it didn't affect anything.

    After that I proceeded to do some basic overclocking from Msi Afterburner, (not directly from bios.) So all of the changes I made could be reset with ease. I downloaded and used a few fan speed programs, cup-z, and a few others, but only tinkered with msi afterburner and Speedfan.. Although I could not figure out how to effectively change the fan speed to the way I want it because the fan was blasting at 100%. So I tinkered with Speedfan program and changed a few basic fan settings, and suddenly my computers disk usage was going through the roof after doing anything. I don't think this was the cause, especially since I uninstalled the program, deleted it from registry, removed the folder, etc etc. There should be no remaining effects of the program on this computer. Also, the programs causing the high disk usage are not really related to speedfan... But that being said, whenever the disk usage increases even slightly my fan goes nuts. Also searches are incredibly slow. So at this moment I am perplexed and could use a hand.

    Also note that I have already done a system restore with no changes to this problem. I also restored Bios to optimized defaults, with no change either.

    I added attachment pictures showing the processes not long after boot.

    System model: GA-78LMT-USB3 6.0
