I'm running an HP Pavilion 6000 with an i3-550 chip, 5GB DDR3. Last summer I upgraded to Windows 10.
More recently than that (like, since December), I've suffered repeated hangups while running Firefox. Here's the problem:
If I leave my desk or don't use my computer for any length of time (like 5 minutes) the computer hangs up for 10 to 20 minutes. Eventually it will return to normal, but it's driving me insane, as I work mostly from home & am on the phone a lot with clients.
Using the task manager I've tried stopping Superfetch and that has not eliminated the problem.
The culprit seems to be Dick Space Cleanup Manager for Windows. When the computer hangs up (and when it still allows me to open task manager) I can see that this program is 100 percent of the disk, according to Task Manager.
I have not experience this problem except when Firefox is open.
Is there a way to stop this program? Is there a way to sked to run only during the hours I'm asleep? Or is there another way to solve the problem?
Thanks for any help you can offer!
