Last week my computer was working completely normally, but a few days ago the disk usage would flare up from 0% to 95 and 100% in around 2 minutes. Now, i have done numerous scans with malwarebytes, superantispyware etc and nothing has been found apart from a few tracking cookies in superantispyware. When my PC loads hardly any programs run at the start apart from malwarebytes, anti exploit and my anti virus and this has never happened before until recently.
But i thought firstly it may have been a combo between firefox and spotify, because i had spotify open once while watching a youtube video and firefox just stopped responding for around 10 minutes, then when i looked at the disk usage it was 100% for the entire time apparently and that really isn't normal at all to me lol. Then i removed both of them for a test, then the same thing happened with microsoft edge and the usage went to 100% in about two seconds flat too. I've had to restart my computer a lot via the button, which i hate doing and i've also done a disk check and it claims the disk is healthy. What else can i do? Thanks. And yes, i did post this somewhere else but it must have been in the wrong place. I really need this resolving as my computer is unusable practically and it will only work in safe mode. system and compressed memory is at the top when the usage goes to %100.
