New Win 10 system disk usage

  martd7 22:21 07 Mar 2019

I've just purchased a new win 10 system which is operating slowly due to hard disk usage of up to 97%

Looking in Task manager Service host local system (15) is using it fluctuating from 12% to 97% every few seconds

New pc nothing installed just Windows 10 pro 64bit

Probably windows update searching for the latest updates. It usually settles down after 10 minutes. Maybe try running the updates manually to see if there are any to be downloaded.

Take it that it has decent sized hard drive on it.
