Win10 slow performance, 100% disk usage, system Freezing and crashing. .. Fixed | ReAndroid Community

Hello friends,

I am back here again with great resolution for your Windows 10 computers!

Win 10 Issue 100% Disk Usage

Sometimes people can't understand why brand new Windows 10 computers are very slow, lags & freezes a lot and some time even crashes. In fact, found some out of box computer behaving in the same way.

Some people start to think of such PCs as a piece of crap/lemon/junk.

Just want to tell you that it is a simple software issue.

Just open Taskmanager using Cortana and click on show more options and you will see which services and apps are causing this trouble.
This issue has caused PC manufacturers millions & billions of dollars in products returns and servicing them. Because most of us don't even try to fix. Who tried it cost them time and efforts.

Let's now talk about fixing it!

Step 1
See if you have the Goolgle chrome browser on the computer because Google chrome is one of the slow performance reason on win10.
Prediction service in chrome browser seems to be conflicting with Windows 10 services and causing 100% disk usage.
Go to the settings of chrome browser then go to advance there you will find predictive options, just unchecked it.

Step 2:
Check if you have Skype installed on the computer :
Make sure you have exited Skype and it is not running in the taskbar (if it is running in the taskbar then quit it).
Open Windows Explorer and open the following folder:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Skype\Phone\"
Now right click the "Skype.exe" file and then click "Properties" and open the "Security" tab.
Click the "Edit" button and then highlight "ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES" and place a tick in the "Write" box.
Click "Apply" and then "OK" and then "OK" again.

Step 3:
Go running box by pressing Windows key + 'r' on the keyboard, now type in msconfig click OK.
It will pop up system configuration box.
In this box go to services, there would be the huge list of services.
You have to find out for the Superfetch and the windows search service, find them and uncheck both of them.
To make it easier to find you can simply type Superfetch really fast it will take you there. Do the same for Windows search, but when you will press space-bar it will disable Windows module service which then you have to scroll up and enable again.
Click apply and okay it will ask you to restart do it.

Step 4:

In this  step you need to right click on the windows icon the select device manager in there look for ATPI adapter with green chip icon, click on arrow left to it, underneath it you will see one option, double-click on it and it will pop up device properties box, go to details, in there from drop down select Hardware ID, now in list make a note of first Hardware ID.
Now again go to the RUN box remove msconfig from there and put in regedit. In Regedit select System>current control set>enum>PCI>now look for the one which looks like the Hardware ID we noted earlier (From Device manager)> Expand Device parameters> under which on right side you will have MSI Support double click on it and you will see value assigned to it would be 1 make it 0.
Close Regedit.
Hopefully it will resolve the issue if not then create new users account and go to the settings>Account add new local account and try it.

Step 5 (Not for the customer who is using Windows 10 1803 Built, if not sure about it avoid step 5) Disabling Windows Defender.
Still not working then need to run PowerShell commands to reconfigure some Apps:
Windows defender: Found it to be conflicting with 3rd party antivirus apps so in order to disable it run PowerShell commands >

Set-MpPreference -DisableRealtimeMonitoring $true

Check if it makes difference.
Try this Windows Defender Uninstaller (Not for the customer who are using 1803)Following the above command try this following commands on command prompt:
sc stop windefend
sc delete windefend
Then fix below registry:
Next, you need to grant full permissions to and delete the following registry key so the Defender Control Panel entry can be deleted:
3. Also, grant full permission and delete the Defender program registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender
4. Now delete the following folders:
C:\Program Files\Windows Defender
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Defender (for 64-bit users only)
After that is done, Defender should now be removed. Windows may complain that Defender is turned off but this will disappear after a reboot or you can go into Action Center and tell it not to monitor your anti-spyware software.
Step 6:
Still not fix then run below PowerShell commands:

Use the Powershell command

  1. Press the CTRL + SHIFT + ESC hotkey combination to open task manager.
  2. Click File, then and choose Run New Task from the drop-down menu.
  3. Type PowerShell in the Open line of theCreate New Task pop-up window and click ok
  4. Now right click PowerShell from the taskbar and select run as administrator from the pop-up menu
  5. Now copy/paste the following command in the command prompt of the Powershell Window that has a blue background:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

  6. Press the ENTER key. Wait for the command to finish then reboot your system.
If still running slow and task manager still shows 100℅ disk usage then try another powershell ccommand:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
Step 7
Go to the c:\Users\username\Appdata\Roaming folder and delete everything in there will fix the problem.
Small tip here: If you get any errors that Microsoft Windows can't delete some file don't get confused just simply skip that file.
Step 8
Check for multiple Antivirus installed on the system, if found then remove one of them.
You can do it by going to Programs & Features.
Step 9
Create a custome data collector set to monitor and control performance of your PC.  Check my another article for it. Click here.
Step 10
Reinstall Audio drive specially if you have Realtek Audio controller in device manager.
You need to it install it in different way check this link for it, this link is for different issue but uses same techniques to rinstall drivera which required to resolve this issue. Click here to check it out.

Step 11

Download windows 10 ISO from Microsoft reinstall fress OS.
I added to much of info colabrated by different sources.
Believe me first 4 steps are generally require.
Note:  Above performing above steps and given content needs computer expertise on computer, and knowledge to back up the computer files and information. Ensure you are able to backup all your important files and data otherwise you will lose them. 
If after doing all the above steps your computer is not working kindly contact the device manufacturer and explain about the situation they will try following the above steps but just confirm with them that you have tried this and you also tried doing the OS installation form Microsoft Media Creation tool and there is no Dell software or Third Party software installed on the system anymore. 
What Manufacturer should do in this case: As reinstalled Windows and still facing the issue that indicates there is something inside the computer which is not working in sync with the HW and OS installed. They will certainly take the issue to there higher technical expertise and try replacing some Hardware component of the computer with the different manufacturer and it will eventually resolve the issue.
