[size=40]Temporarily disable Windows Search[/size]

[size=37]Windows Search is what makes searching files on your PC much faster. If you don’t use it at all, or you have another search app, you can disable it completely. Disabling this service will stop the indexing of all files. But you will still have access to search, which will take longer time.[/size]
[size=37]Here’s how to temporarily disable Windows Search and find out if it’s the cause of your 100% disk utilization problem. (Note that Windows Search will start again when you restart your computer.)[/size]
[size=30]1) On your keyboard, press the [size=30]Windows logo key [/size][You must be registered and logged in to see this image.][size=30] and [/size][size=30]X[/size][size=30] at the same time, then select[/size][size=30] Command Prompt (Admin)[/size][size=30]. [/size][/size]

[size=37]4) Hit Enter on your keyboard. [/size]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[size=42]Fix 5: Reset Virtual Memory[/size]

[size=37]Virtual memory can be considered an extension of your computer’s physical memory. It’s a combination of RAM and a portion of your hard drive. When the RAM isn’t enough to perform a task, Windows will temporarily store files in virtual memory, then swap them back to RAM when required. [/size]
[size=37]To reset virtual memory:

1) On your keyboard, press Windows keyand Pause/ Break key at the same time. Then choose Advanced System Settingson the left panel.[/size]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[size=37]2) Go to the Advanced tab, then click Settings. [/size]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
3) Go to the Advanced tab again, and choose Change… in the Virtual memory section. 
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
4) Ensure the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives checkbox isNOT ticked. 
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
5) Select your windows drive (the hard drive or partition that has Windows installed on it – usually C:), and enter an Initial size and Maximum size for your virtual memory:
[/size]

  • Initial size – This value varies, depending on your computer. If you’re not sure what value to use, just enter whatever the number is in the Recommended category. 
  • Maximum size – Don’t set this value too high. It should be about 1.5 times the size of your physical RAM. e.g. A PC with 4 GB (4096 MB) of RAM should have no more than about 6,144 MB virtual memory (4096 MB x 1.5).

[size]
Once you’ve entered your virtual memory values, click Set, then click OK to continue. 
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

[size=42]Fix 6: Disable Antivirus Software temporarily[/size]

[size=37]If you’ve installed antivirus or anti-malware programs such as Norton, Kaspersky, AVG, Avast Behavior Shield or Malwarebytes, you should temporarily turn them off or disable them to see if they’re causing your disk usage problem. [/size]

[size]
[size=37]Note that Microsoft has its own default anti-malware, Windows Defender. It’s automatically enabled even if you also have other antivirus applications installed. Even if you disable your other antivirus programs, Windows Defender is always there for you during that certain time range. So, no need to worry too much about temporarily turning antivirus off. [/size]
[size=37]Once you’ve disabled your antivirus, check your computer’s disk usage again: Type “task manager” in the Windows search bar and select Task Manager, then in the Processes tab, look at the % at the top of the Disk column. If it’s no longer 100%, you’ve found the problem, and you should contact the vendor of your antivirus software to see if they can provide some help.[/size]
