100% disk problem

My PC is maxed out at 100% disk while cpu and memory remain low. I have tried almost everything I could find online to resolve this issue from disabling superfetch, disabling widows defender, changing virtual memory info, I've ran Malwarebytes in normal and safe mode but no issues found along with Bitdefender that found nothing. I also ran FARBAR and the items listed as ATTENTION I copied over to a fixlist.txt file and ran a repair on those. It forced my pc into a Windows Update which didn't seem to fix anything after the fact.
 
I have no idea what's causing this. Upon the initial boot it will stay at 100% for several minutes before I can do anything. I only have one item listed to run at startup so I can't see why it's so bogged down. There are times the usage will drop to a normal rate but suddenly it'll climb back to 100% with no programs open on my end.
 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What kind of Hard Drive is in your machine, if I can throw a general inquiry your way about it.

1tb HDD 5400 rpm...

It's the Asus q304ua... If you have a scanner you'd like me to run to post details I can.

If you're able to open Task Manager, and click the "More Details" Section, and then sort by Disk Usage, as shown below, can you list what exactly uses the Disk to 100%?

​There are a ton of services running. I tried doing a print screen but have nothing to paste it to.

 

I recently wiped the computer clean and have no programs installed besides Malwarebytes and Bitdefender at the moment. I thought about doing a fresh install of windows and adding my Asus drivers after the fact.

Hit the Windows Key and PrintScreen together, It will save a photo to:

Alternatively, you can paste the Screenshot to Paint and save an image from there.

That has been my experience so far.

 

http://imgur.com has been reliable to host images with, although I've grown fond of just mainstreaming everything with Gyazo lately.

You do not need to host the image if you attach it.  Each user on BC has a limited amount of space for images, and I ran out a long time ago, but if this is the first thing you're posting you should still be good to to.

It seems like Cortana isn't playing nicely in the background, for some strange reason. I can't say I've had a problem with Cortana in the background, but I did a bit of research, and this worked for somebody else.

 

Start your Settings app, and go to System --> Battery. Then go to Battery Usage By App

 

Then Find Cortana, click on it, and click "Never Allowed in Background"

 

(I do not have these options available to me to test, because I am using a Desktop computer)

Set it to sort by the maximum time available, and possibly All Apps, if available.

I went in and disabled cortana and a few other things that were running in the background and this is what I see now...

 

I should also note that I completely reinstalled windows using the tool found here..
