    Disk Usage 100% During Start-Up

    Hey guys. Just as the title says, my disk usage shoots up to 100% during boot up for a few minutes before returning to normal operation. I have spent hours searching for solutions, yet nothing has resulted in a fix. Just a quick overview of the things I have tried:
    - Tried disabling SuperFetch, Windows Search, and BITS
    - Updated chipset drivers
    - Have tested HDD for failures (laptop is a brand new Sager 7358S)
    - Disabled every start-up service

    I have included a screen shot to show that svchost.exe seems to be to culprit, but I do not know how to remedy the issue from here. Hopefully someone here knows how! Thanks in advance.
