Like many others using Windows 10 I too suffered from 100% disk usage. I have tried virtually everything online and did manage to get it down a bit. It seems to still peak a bit with hardly any programs open and if I run AVAST by itself it will rise to 100% not allowing me to do anything else until it's completed. Prior to having these issues I could run my virus scanner in the background and still use my pc and disk usage would still stay fairly low but not now anymore.
When I check my event viewer there are tons of errors and the one that seems to show up the most is Distributedcom 10016 and with Service Control Manager, some kernel erros, and more.
I've tried running chkdsk /r and chkdsk /f along with sfc /scannow and nothing was reported. Glary Utilities did have an $i30 error on index... but HD Tune found nothing. I tried to upload my event log but not sure how to attach it.
I did mail it into ASUS for a warranty repair and all they did was reload windows and send it back to me. I had done that prior to mailing it in which is very frustrating. Obviously they didn't check it before sending it back otherwise they would see they didn't resolve the issue.

Intel® Core™ i5 7200U Processor, 2.3 GHz (3 M Cache, up to 2.8 GHz)
