         Hello, first of all, thank you guys for doing what you do. Well, my PC is behaving as if it has a high disk usage or CPU usage, but when I check TaskManager it seems fine. Then other times, SVC Host (Local system: Network Restricted) runs up high usage. It's just not behaving well. I use CCleaner, Defraggler, I occasionally clean out the Prefetch folder, but not often because I know that it helps application startup more efficiently. Long story short, I'm certainly not a computer expert, but I do regular maintenance and read articles on how to keep a clan system. I would like to avoid restoring my PC to factory settings, but if I have to then that is what I'll do. Thank you again for your time!!

Download and run Sysinternals' Process Explorer.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653

See which process is using the most CPU and/or memory.

Double click on the process name and select the Threads tab to see which thread is using the most resources.

Also, enable the VirusTotal check in Process Explorer by clicking on Options > VirusTotal.com > Check VirusTotal.com

Use the built-in Windows Snipping Tool to grab screen shots.

Post the images on a site such as Dropbox, Imgur, etc. and paste the links to the images in the thread.

This would help.

Done and done. I have had Process Explorer for quite some time. Everything seems to be in order. Nothing is using excessive amounts of memory or CPU usage. Hmmm. lol. With only a 1GB GPU running on 8GB RAM with an old AMD A8 6410 APU, I'm probably in need of a new PC altogether.

- Have you accepted all your Updates?

 

- Have you checked the Hard-drive Health?

https://www.maketecheasier.com/check-hard-disk-health-windows/

 

-  If the HDD is good then run sfc /scannow in an elevated command prompt.  Report the outcome.  You can Copy Paste it into a Notepad doc if you want.

sfc /scannow 

- You can also use this tool to see if you are overheating, just for good measure.

- At some point you should learn to run Speccy to provide members with helpful Technical Info
