    Windows 10 pretty much usually at 100% disk usage

    This is a different computer with a new installation. My computer comes to a halt. I will click on something and have to wait awhile before the program begins. I will open a window and wait until it opens. I click close and the window remains there and finally closes a bit later. The only things I have installed are:

    Open Office
    Korean IME
    Japanese IME
    Russian IME
    Macromedia Package
    Adobe Reader
    Paperclip a print tool we use for my business

    I thought it was a memory leak in Firefox but it persists even when I close that. When I boot fresh, it is at 100%. Here is a screenshot sorted by the programs that are using memory.Click image for larger version.

    Quick question; does Skype open at Start-up? Not sure if you are aware of this or not but Skype & Google Chrome cause 100% Disk Usage, it's something to do with that. I know that this may not be your solution, but I think turning off Skype from Start-up and making sure it doesn't run alongside Google Chrome is a quick fix. However, if this doesn't work- I have one more solution for you! (:

    Hi, you might try this- I recall I struggled with disk use when I first upgraded to Win 10 on my old PC a long time back... Defender and this:

    Hi, you might try this which has significantly reduced disk usage after logon:
    Open Task Scheduler. Under Microsoft->Windows->Customer Experience Improvement Program. Right click->disable the 2 tasks.

    You don't need them and been known to cause problems. MS collect data and send it in the background.

    Thanks to @topgundcp

    (I also then found installing Avast (replacing Defender helped greatly- although I wouldn't expect that to be necessary now).

    Something is worth looking at:
    1. Most programs don't really need to run at startup. Just use it when needed.
    2. Upgrading might screw up the search database. stop "Windows Search" service and delete
      then restart service, let it rebuild a fresh index database.
    3. System Restore might be corrupted. Delete all restore points. Then re-create a brand new one if you use system protection.
    4. Run from Admin command: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    5. Open Settings then search: Apps then select "Which apps can run in the background" then turn off. Again, just run when needed.
