How to fix the 100% disk usage on my Y70-70 Touch Laptop?

2018-02-28, 0:27 AM

My Y70-70 Touch Laptop has been booting up and running really slow. I thought it was because I had too many programs enabled on start up so I disabled a few programs I don't use on a daily basis.


When doing this I noticed that under the Process tab the Disk is running at 100% with only the task manager open. I just got Webroot and it tells me I don't have any viruses. My other Acer laptop runs a Disk at 1% to 2%. 


Is this why it boots up and runs exptreamly slow? How do I fix this?

Task manager will tell you what process is hogging the disk.

You need to address whatever is running high utilization in the background. It could be anything and likely more than one component. HD defragging and/or AV scan going on are examples


You need to figure it out task manager will give you a lot of info
