    Slow Disk/ PC after Windows Update

    After a windows update, Norton 360 backup and defrag swamped the disk. The Active time jumped to 95%+ and the Average response time was between 1,000 and 20,000 ms (1 to 20 seconds). The fix was to let the machine run for a few hours.

    On one hand, recognizing that the disk needed defraged and backup after so many files were modified, deleted and added is a good thing. On the other hand, user processes should have higher priority and get at least 50% of the disk time over background processes.
