From last 2 weeks I have been noticing high disk usage when I am am browsing the web or not just running any intensive task, today it happened again the whole system just froze up for no reason and after a few seconds worked fine,The lappy/system is used for banking/online payments so I just wanna make sure I don't have something hiding in my system.


Laptop/System Configuration:-

Core i7 4510U


1TB Hitachi drive.

Windows 10 Professional

NOD32 antivirus 


Scans Run by Me

NOD32 was up to date and a scan done by it has shown nothing.I also installed HitmanPro and ran a scan which came clean,around 6 months back I did a HDD scan for bad sectors(using check disk) and it came back clean.The laptop is just 2+ years old I doubt the HDD is gonna die so soon  :unsure:


The laptop is connected to my Lg 21" IPS display I am not sure whats the culprit here but I also have frequent screen blips -> you know like when a new file explorer window opens it goes black and everything(browser or Notepad++) else is in the same colour.
