Hello, 

I have windows 10 64 bit, edition Windows 10 Pro, Version 1511, OS Build 10586.104

 

Processor : i5-4690k

 

Ram (installed) : 16gb

 

Video card : gtx 970 with 4gb vram. 

 

 

Issue: Computer is slow at times lately. Memory Usage in task manager is constantly high when this occurs. Not many Operations are open and running.  I am having fps drops while gaming as well that is annoying. Attached image of processes and percent of usage across cpu,memory, disk, and network currently as my PC is pissing me off. 

 

9:45 pm - Just tried to shutdown windows via task bar and windows cycle through shutting down, blink black scree, pc stayed on, windows popped back up.  Hard shutup via pc case i/o button and windows still tried to cycle through shuttind down, blinking black screen, pc on still, and windows flicked back on and then shutoff completely.  WEIRD!

 

Thanks!

How did you install W10?

Have you updated everything to ensure that it's all W10 compatible?

 

Here's some suggestions:

Otherwise this tends to look similar to many other problems that we've seen with W10 being installed on well-used systems.

There's a couple of things to try:
1)  Run the following command in a Powershell window that's run as an Administrator in order to re-register the Windows Store apps:

[S]Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}[/S]
From this article:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/re-register-windows-store-apps
Be sure that Edge is closed (in Task Manager).  Cortana will spit an error as it's still running - don't worry about that for now.

It seems that using this command now will break apps - please don't try it.

2)  Uninstall your antivirus, then use the removal tool for it (there's a list of most of them here:  http://www.carrona.org/avuninst.html ), then install a freshly downloaded, W10 compatible version.  Some A/V have difficulties with the upgrade, so removing them and then reinstalling them will help how they run.

3)  Download fresh copies of the latest, W10 compatible audio and video drivers for your system.  Then uninstall the current versions from your system.  Then install the freshly downloaded versions.

4)  Get ALL available Windows Updates

5)  Get ALL available, W10 compatible drivers/programs from the manufacturer's website.  If some aren't compatible w/W10, check here about uninstalling them.

6)  Get ALL available, W10 compatible drivers/programs for any add-on hardware and any software that you installed previously.  If they aren't compatible, please uninstall them.

If this doesn't fix things, then post back so we can discuss the following options:
- continuing to attempt to fix this copy of the OS
- Reset of the OS (considering both the "Keep My Files" and the "Remove Everything" options)
- revert to the previous OS (both at less than 30 days, and at more than 30 days since initial update)
- revert to the previous OS with another attempt at installing W10 (I don't recommend this)
- clean install of the previous OS
- clean install of the previous OS, then update to W10 (only needed if a clean install of W10 fails)
- W10 clean install

I had windows 7 and I upgraded. Was not a fresh install. I am not sure if I am up to date. The issue still persists. 16gb of ram is a whole hell of a lot to fill for "compression files"
