    100% Disk Usage: Have attempted numerous steps with no success


    I have a Toshiba Laptop with an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz processor, Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500 graphics card, 4.0 GB of RAM, and Microsoft Windows 10 (build 10586), 64-bit operation system. Here is what I have attempted to solve the 100% Disk issue:

    1.) Run anti-virus and anti-malware software
    2.) I have disabled Windows Search
    3.) Disabled Superfetch
    4.) Disable the Flash plugin for Chrome (I only use Chrome)
    5.) During the most recent spike I noticed that "System and Compressed Memory" correlated with a spike, as I noticed it increase and decrease with the spike. Under performance options -> Visual Effects -> I have selected "Adjust for best performance", and under the Advanced tab -> Virtual Memory: Change -> I have unchecked "Automatically manage paging file size for all drivers".

    None of these have worked and I am at a loss. I do not download that many things to my computer. All I really do with this computer is use MySQL, R, and Excel. I do not download macro's for excel as I know VBA and can do it myself. All packages installed by R are from trusted sources. My relational database is only local as it is only for personal use. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hello, we can't really comment unless you post a screenshot of your task manager; click the Disk tab to show processes using it most at the top. Thanks.

    If System and Compressed Memory is using CPU time (it shouldn't be noticeable) then please search this forum (white search box above) for
    System and Compressed Memory
    when you will find useful information in threads. (There's no one solution)

    See if this helps - turn off Windows Universal Apps (WUA). If you're curious, turn one off at a time to see if it is a particular App.

    I appreciate the response. I haven't had an issue with Sys & Comp memory since I have done the fix for it. I will make sure to take screen shots of my task manager when the issue occurs again. Thank you for your help!
