so i'm trying very hard to fix my PC, as this problem occurred 2 nights ago for no discernible reason and i've been ripping my hair out looking for solutions. As for ones a could find at least have not worked at all but to change settings that had no effect upon the problem, so i'm reaching out now to anyone that can help me with my windows 10 PC problem really any advice is welcomed at this point in my frustation
I've had the same problem with a laptop, again starting a couple of nights ago. Typically, the HD will show 100% active time but nothing on processes or on resource monitor. Read and write speeds fall to under 100KB/s and average response time up to 8000ms. Only thing changed recently, apart from Windows Updates was a new version of Avast, which I've removed using the Avast tool. still no improvement.
Disabling windows search and superfetch haven't made any difference.
Strange thing is, when it settles down it flies along.
