Here are screenshots of my BIOS and after restart while i was loging to windows i experienced again a 100% disk usage, the PC didn't freeze as usual, and i guess it was because it was loading things nevertheless i took screenshots and the file of Process Explorer and HWMonitor.  The screenshots of task manager happened in 1-2 minutes, as you can see the process varies without the 100% going down.

 

My power supply is an Acteck Z600

 

AC Input 115v 60HZ 6A / Dc Output 230V 50HZ 3A

Type command to start searching
Right click on command prompt in list and select Run Administrator
Copy and Paste the full commands below into the command prompt

Let it run for approx 1 min
Then Press Any Key to Stop capture
This will create a file highCPU.etl on your desktop
Compress the file to a .zip file and upload to your reply

Hi, guys, if you have no idea what  program exactly causes your PC into high disk usage, you would better struggle to uninstall the installed updates for Windows 10 so as to spare more disk space for other programs.

To do that:

Go to Settings > Update &Security > Windows Update > Update hisytory > Uninstall updates

You can choose to uninstal some unrelevant updates or uninstall all.

Past days my PC seemed to be working Ok, i was able to run some heavy programs without problem and there was a high disk usage but i guess it was because the programs, unfortunately yesterday i came back and my pc was restarted, i don't know why, and i started to experience high disk usage again and freezings, after some minutes i had a BSOD, and when restarted the screen remained black, i only could see the mouse pointer and had to do a hard turn off. Right now i was able to login to windows and im experiencing hiccups again.
Haven't tried the clean boot, but was able to fetch the HighCPU.etl

Im trying but right now seems impossible. I did change the language, with difficulties because the hiccups, and after restarting the system its almost unusuable, it takes a long moment to respond and look at the photos i took. Im starting to believe it could be to something GPU related. I did a MemTestx86 and found no errrors in ram.

Did you ever try the following and see how it performs.
Follow How To Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 10 
 

I changed the memory sticks

Did you replace them or what exactly did you do?
 
I am concerned about the voltages and I am starting to think the PSU is the main problem. especially with the GPU issues. If you are comfortable testing as shown in the following video:
 

 
Okay good, I am aware of that fix for the spotlight issues.
 
Have you experienced any more Blue Screens? It seems to point to a hardware or memory issue from initial analysis.
 
HIgh Disk usage anaysis 
 
1. Windows Search
Disable Windows Search 
https://techjourney.net/disable-and-turn-off-windows-10-8-1-8-7-search-indexer-and-indexing-service/
 
2. PubMonitor - http://processchecker.com/file/PubMonitor.exe.html
Seems to be related to I/O bit program. Please uninstall with RevoUninstaller to completely remove.
 
3. Lcore. See if there is a newer version to update to
https://www.file.net/process/lcore.exe.html
 
4. Firefox cache. Cleanup all temp files with TFC Temporary File Cleaner[/size]
 
5. Run Minitoolbox
Download MiniToolBox and save it to your desktop

  • Right click on program and select Run as Administrator
  • Select to Run All options
  • Click Go and wait patiently
  • After it completes (a reboot may be needed)
  • Result.txt will be saved on your desktop
  • Upload Results.txt to your next reply

6. Run WPT steps again

Did you replace them or what exactly did you do?

 

Months ago i had 16gb (4x 4gb) on my system, and started to experience random BSOD that were related to my ram, did some test and 1 of the sticks apparently had a problem, so i took 8gb out.

Months go by and i start to experience this high disk peak, but as i said there were no problems detected on RAM, still i took the chance and replaced with the other 8gb i had taken out before.

I had the spotlight issue and thought that changing the ram didn't fix it and that could have been the PSU or GPU, but after fixing the spotlight with powershell everything has been fine.

 

That's why i didn't reply back, since my last post i haven't had high peaks, maybe 1 or 2 after a system restart but PC doesn't freeze for moments and disk comes back to normal.

 

I can't test the PSU because i don't have the tools to do so.
Lcore is updated, installed it directly from logitech, unistalled PubMonitor but shouldn't be the issue, since the problem was present 2 times right after installing windows in a formated partition.

 

Right now im not sure if the problem has been fixed for some reason, but i haven't experienced it for days.

 

Thanks for your help dmccoyks

I am glad to hear things are working better and hope they continue. I would recommend watching your voltages and possibly replacing the power supply if things get worse again.

Hi, well you are not alone, since version 1709 many users have discovered "EseDiskFlushConsistency" (ESENT) notifications in event viewer, these cause the symptoms that you are having. Unfortunately we have not been able to pin down the exact cause, maybe v1803 that rolls out today, will have a fix. You may have followed some previous advice and disabled superfetch (which seems to give some temporary relief) it is also advised to turn off indexing, doing this seems to have worked for many. I am sorry I don't have a more definitive answer.
