    I will perform the longer system reinstall now. Thanks for your help.

    Actually, I'm going to use this tool: Access Denied seems like a better idea?

    Edit: It's currently downloading windows 10.

    Okay, that was directly after the computer booted from "clean" install. Literally as soon as I saw a desktop I opened task manager.

    Things seem more responsive as of right now, even with it showing 100% disk. I don't know if it will effect performance, but we'll see....

    Hi, thanks, ok, clean installed. But disk usage shouldn't be 100%.

    So again it's not a clean install. Battle.net? Systemsurvey.exe? Steam?

    I had just installed it, figuring that this problem isn't going to get solved easily, the fresh install was as good as it's been in ages so I was going to run with hit. I closed it before took the screenshot with the resource monitor.

    I'm not going to have to reinstall again, will I?

    The only reason those would be running after a clean install of Windows would be if you had installed them yourself again.

    I'm guessing therefore you don't know how to do a clean install...
    Here's how:
    Windows 10 - Clean Install

    You have two options:
    a. proceed with whatever you have installed now, and try to diagnose the problem
    b. clean install Windows (or reset it) - which means all programs and data on C: will be lost.

    Following a.
    Please clean boot Windows.
    Here's how to do that. Follow just part 1.
    Clean Boot - Perform in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts

    Then please repeat the screenshot.

    I installed battle.net and steam after the clean install, hence why I said "I had just installed it" in my previous post. The windows reinstall was perfectly clean. The screen shots you see are of a clean windows system that only has official steam and battle.net downloads (once again downloaded and installed -after- the clean windows install)

    Thanks for clarifying. Well, the idea was to establish a state where disk behaviour was normal.
    So assuming disk behaviour was ok after you clean installed, but not now, that would suggest the problem is related to what you've installed.

    The earlier screenshot was taken seconds after the clean install showed me a desktop and it was still at 100 percent. The screenshot with the default blue windows 10 background.
