    100% disk usage. Tried probably everything...


    Its getting worse and worse by the day. The disk usage goes 100% whenever i add a tab, minimize a game. This never used to happen before i tried several tips to reduce the usage which made even worse. I have tried probably everything except buying another hardrive which i wont cause mine is pretty much new. Can you suggest maybe a tip that would actually fix this problem? I tried turning off suggested services, search, power options, ending tasks...

    Hi,
    1. Check your disk: download install and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and post a screenshot of its GUI.
    2. If ok, try a clean boot
    Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials
    part 1
    and check performance, and

    from an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

    or

    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

    Post result.

    3. If not ok, boot to Safe Mode and check performance. Post result.

    History:
    When did this start to happen?
    Do you know of any possible change that occurred that may have led to this?


    Please complete your specs. Desktop? Laptop? Tablet? Surface? RAID configuration? HDD? SSHD? SSD?
    See mine for comparison and please include details of your disk (s). Thanks.

    Clean boot seemed to do something but it still jumps to 100% whenever i minimize a game or switch between chrome tabs. Every time i open something it just jumps to 100%.
    History: I got windows 10 day 1 when it came out. And had them for almost 2 years. I did a clean install at the start of may because i though it was needed (I used to do this with windows 7 every 3 months). After that the pc was fine until two weeks ago when i started doing some simple modding and spriting. After i was done with it, then the problem started. I do have Advanced system care ultimate and I use Smart defrag, Driver booster a lot. Every few weeks i defrag my hard drive and run trough other scans to ensure security of my pc. I never had this problem before i decited to do a clean install. And right now i dont really want to do another clean installation cause downloading back stuff is just tiring. I do have external HHD where I keep my work, movies, pictures.

    Do you have any disk images or restore points before the date you started that?
    (We strongly and repeatedly recommend the use of disk imaging e.g. Macrium Reflect (free) so that you can easily recover from this sort of scenario quickly and without technical help).

    I use Smart defrag, Driver booster a lot.
    Neither of these should be necessary: we strongly recommend against the routine use of driver updater programs.


    Please
    a. Try Safe Mode and advise whether the problem occurs then.
    b. If not, please provide a screenshot of task manager (details) and Resource Monitor (disk activity) when high activity is present.

    (What's spriting?)

    Do you have any disk images or system restore points before the date you started that?

    I.e. can you restore your PC to before this started- before your tweaking?

    Consider:
    1) running a manual full malware scan with your current antivirus scanner as well as malwarebytes
    2) in place up grade repair using a bootable windows 10 iso:
    Download Windows 10
    An in place upgrade repair will allow you to keep your files and applications.
    You must be able to boot and open file explorer
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials
    3) if you prefer to troubleshoot is may take substantially more time:
    you could run windows performance recorder:

    Spriting is just some pixel work with images.
