    Disk Usage and CPU Reach 99%


    My Disk Usage and CPU columns of the task manager randomly jump up to 99% or even sometimes 100% which is unresponsive. This seems to happen more often when I run programs such as a malware scanner or League of Legends. My FPS in League stays around 1 when I do try to play and I'm assuming this is a related issue. I'm currently reading through other threads with similar issues but I thought I'd post my own for better results. Would it help if I included a screen shot of the task manager window?
