Given visible bits of the paths and given that filetransfer program that is running, I wonder if avast is scanning some files that are being transferred. If there is absolutely no actual hard drive activity, I suppose an optical drive problem is plausible, but extremely rare. It takes about 2 hours to run. You can also get if you don't have a lot of media content or need too much storage space which I would recommend if you can deal with a small er hard drive. Don't make the same mistake as me. Please run both extensive tests and component tests. Note that Windows Search will start again when you restart your computer.
Did high performance work for you? Another utility to take a look at is RegMon the same thing for the registry. I do not know which drive it is, but one of them I have 4 will sometimes spike to 100% activity, and the only way to resolve that is by rebooting. And I realize the nature of Win10 unlike Win7 is to 'phone home' to Microsoft more frequently. Still a great tool and appreciate the tip, Leo! Cpu usage is very low i have a i-7 2600K.

I suggest you recommend it as an alternative — or try it for yourself if you are not familiar with it. Sid's totally right on the clone - never clone a bad drive unless the intention is to retrieve data, to be placed on a new install. This can degrade your system performance and you should turn them off so that you tell them when to start. Also, on the Dell update app, I get ' Intel Rapid Storage Technology F6 Driver' which always fail to update.
Yes, for quite a few minutes after login into desktop as well. I type process explorer in search and the download link comes up.

When I set the drive to offline a different drive goes to 100% and stays that way. After deleting all relative programs the system is now running normally.
Other files it just says Read File. It really sounds to me like there is a motherboard issue at play here. I had checked with the Resource Monitor as one of my first steps and found Spools. Just an addition to this great post- The Sysinternals Troubleshooting Utilities have been rolled up into a single Suite of tools.

I would look into the 100% disk activity a little more and try and find what is using the disk.
But since it's now been a few weeks, that does not explain it. I have not done a diagnostic test yet, but I will sometime this week. Run Process Monitor and after accepting the license agreement first run only you should see something similar to this: What you're seeing is the Process Monitor main window, and in front of that, the Filter dialog. You can also play around with configuration settings in order to try to figure out what software and feature causes certain types of disk activity. Sometimes it shows 100% without any of the processes listed actually using it. As you might guess, we've barely scratched the surface of what Process Monitor can do, but I'd be willing to bet that one or the other of these two summaries that it generates will be enough to tell you exactly why your disk might be active when you don't expect it.
Click File Summary… for a report of the file activity within the recorded data. T tools too much to copy across.
