    Hi I'll post this before you're led astray- probably- from your first screenshot you have the problem that has been reported where using Chrome provokes system and compressed memory. I somehow suspected that might be a possibility.

    There are a couple of recent threads here discussing Chrome in particular - here's one where a solution/workaround for this has been posted.
    Solved High CPU usage - System and Compressed Memory - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums

    You also have high disk use from sthg called Nexus Mod Manager. I don't know what that is- perhaps you could comment? Unless it's a temporary situation (doing sthg) it's going to kill your system.

    So you have two causes at least presently...

    asusx205ta #10 is correct in suggesting that solution given system and compressed memory is using so much CPU time - however it's only one of several solutions found for this- let us know if it works. However different people have needed various fixes given their circumstances.

    Hello I'm not sure if this is caused by an update or not but lately(And I mean just the past 2 or 3 days) my PC has been extremely slow. The disk usage in the task manager is almost always at 90-100% if I open more than one browser confirmed for chrome, firefox, and explorer. All downloads are slow and even opening up basic apps on the desktop lag. If I click and drag an open file window or app I'm met with unbearable stuttering. Restarting the PC fixes the issue momentarily but after sitting idle or opening anything the system quickly deteriorates again. I can't stress enough how annoying it is to open a youtube video and have it play normally for a few seconds before it begins to play as if it's in slow motion. I've tried different solutions around the web with no results including a fresh install of Windows 10. Virus scans show nothing with Bit Defender and I've had this anti virus more months without issues. I'm 100% sure it's not a virus. Is this because of an update? Am I screwed until Microsoft fixes Windows 10?
    Based on a recent experience : If your Windows 10 PC is running very slowly, here’s some of the things you can (or should) try. (My Windows 10 PC ran slow due to a bad block on the hard drive, which I sorted out as I’ll explain later on.)
    - Check there’s sufficient space on your hard drive
    - Take a backup (your hard drive might be on its way out).
    - Re-boot.
    - Run an anti-virus scan (eg. Malwarebytes Anti-malware, you can download and run their scan for free.)
    - Clear histories out of Edge and other browsers (your PC might be struggling to open up websites that you had open previously).
    - Look in Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) to see if any jobs are taking up excessive resources of CPU, Memory or Disk.
    - Look in the list of Control Panel/Programs to see if there are any unwanted programs on your PC. Delete any you are sure you don’t need.
    - Take a look in Control Panel/Systems & Security/Admin Tools/View Event Logs. Are there error events (very likely lots of them) which could point to the problem?
    (NB. You can still get to Control Panel in Windows 10 – Google comes up with how to)
    Before I get on to my Bad Blocks problem, you could try some of these things (which seem to have worked for others):
    - Go into Settings/System/Notifications and Actions, and turn the Notifications off. Or :
    - Disable Superfetch and Windows Search (hold down the Windows button and press R; then type in services.msc and press OK, then scroll down to Superfetch, right click on it, change Startup Type to Disabled, OK that, then click Stop at top left of screen. Same for Windows Search).
    - Disable some startup programs (Google comes up with how to)
    - Defrag the hard disk (Google comes up with how to)
    - Reset your PC (a bit drastic) (Google comes up with how to)

    Very likely none of this will help though, and the Event Log (see above) will show that you have a bad block on your hard drive. In that case, try the following:
    - go into Windows Explorer, right-click on your C: drive and select Properties then Tools, then click Check (on Error Checking), and do everything it says there.
    But very likely that won’t work either, because you need to do something more powerful in Administrator mode. So try this :
    - Go to All Apps, Windows System, Command Prompt
    - Right-click on Command Prompt, select More, and click on Run as Administrator
    - Type in the following text (without the quotes, but with the spaces) : “chkdsk /f /r C:”
    and press Enter.
    - After a shortish while it should come back with messages. In my case, it said it couldn’t do the action now as the disk was in use, but would do it on next boot. It did, and the problem was solved.

    @timsjones Hi, you're offering general advice, which is fine, however you are ignoring the quite specific info provided in the task manager screenshots. Until the PC is in a usable state (low CPU/disk) it's not worth trying general maintenance (Ok could be done from Safe Mode or a clean boot e.g. assuming CPU use was then low) But the task manager shows specific info.

    Clearly the issues related to the processes using lots of CPU time and disk time need dealing with.

    The one with Chrome and system and compressed memory is likely to be one which has been reported and solved, so hopefully that can be dealt with. The symptoms reported match well.

    As I've noted previously there is another process too which needs investigating.

    Hey there thanks for the reply! I've been getting more and more frustrated lately with this problem and so I ended up reverting back to Windows 8.1 thinking it would solve the problem. After a clean install yesterday nothing seems to have changed. It isn't just Chrome that lags it's any browser, I noticed that after I restart my computer if I try to download anything via apps like bitcomet the problem accelerates and immediately the videos on youtube begin to lag. There seems to be a direct correlation that I can't find no matter what solution I find on the internet. I've done every scan I can without any errors and yet it seems like anything I do on my computer uses a staggering amount of disk usage. I tried the solution you suggested with no results, also Nexus Mod Manager is just a tool to manage mods for games, it hasn't even been installed after the clean install and I still have these problems. I saw one suggestion for rolling back my nvidia drivers so I'm going to try that but I doubt it will make a difference. I'm really starting to get depressed about this, the pc isn't even a year old yet.

    Hey thanks for the reply! Yeah did everything you've suggested already and nope unfortunately none of that worked.

    Hi, given that you've reverted to 8.1, your task man screenshots are now not relevant. Could I now refer you to eightforums?

    Sure I guess, although like I've stated the problem still persists regardless of my OS. Clearly that isn't the issue then and I don't see a difference in posting in the 10 or 8 sections for help.

    Look in the Tutorials in 8 Forum as it is a bit different to the 10 forum one
    Also have you updated Adobe Flash as that could be causing it
    Also when you went back did you make sure your drivers are up to date

    Updated Flash, been looking in windows 8 sections online since I switched and the problem is the same regardless of the OS. By the same I mean even options like disabling superfetch for example are solutions that are suggested and don'tm work. Right now I'm looking at what driver I'm using for my network adapter as I've realized my computer only slows down when downloading/connecting to the internet. Unfortunately however I cannot seem to find any drivers that need updating in the device manager. I'm searching for a new network adapter for Windows 8 now though.

    If you right click start button
    Then Device Manager
    Then Network Adapter
    Click > it will open up and tell you the name of you adapter
    Mine begins with Q
    Click on that and see if it is up to date or working Properly
