High disk and CPU usage is getting a common problem for windows 8.1 and mostly windows 10 users. This issue is really annoying and causes your system to be very slow and possibly starts hanging. The problem is caused by windows defender and some of the services.
Luckily I’ve got solution to this problem and today I’ll share it with you
Follow this guide to resolve the issue.
Open task manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) on your computer to check the usage of your computer resources. If your disk usage is above 70% or around 70-99% on no disk copy operations then continue to step 2.
Download and install 360 total security latest version from the link below ..
After successful installation, reboot your PC and continue to next step.
You’ll have to disable some of the services. Type services.msc in the start menu search or in run box and run it as administrator. You’ll see services windows as given below..
