    Windows 10 Painfully slow - 100% CPU Usage

    Hey, since today this random issue has popped up, where my computer slows down dramatically and my CPU usage soars to 100%, even though nothing in my processes is even that high, It happens in any program, such as if I'm gaming or browsing the web, and everything grinds to a halt, if I attempt to shutdown (with fast startup), the computer's screen goes black, but it won't turn off, forcing me to do a hard restart. Any help?

    Edit: Not sure if this will work, but I still had Intel HD Graphics as well as my GTX 660M Card installed, and in task manager, gfxui was taking up hard disk bandwidth, so if anyone else has this issue try reinstalling the HD Graphics driver

    Edit #2: The above should work, considering it has for me if you have Intel HD Graphics
