    Disk reaching 100% HELP PLS


    Hello I am Sheldon for some reason when I play games like titan-fall, BF4, arma 2, really any modern game.(some modern games dont freeze as frequently as others) I can play for a few minutes but then my computers disk reaches 100% then freezes for a few minutes then stops freezing and then it works just fine for a few more minutes and so on. I would be cool with it if the processes matched up with the 100% but it does not. it could be at 100% but only be writing 50 MB/s and reading 20 MB/s (not exact numbers) I do not see that reaching 100% on the hard drive I have. My computer specs will be below for you to see and thanks for the help.


    My computer specs

    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4440 CPU 3.1GHz
    RAM: 8 GB
    System type: 64bit
    Graphics card: ASUS GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
    Hard Drive:
    Western Digital Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

    If you need anything else pls tell me.

    Hey mate, I recently had this problem on a client. I removed some PUPs (basically malware, but not classified as such) and it went back to normal. Install malwarebytes (.org) malware remover, update it and use the scanner, and remove all that it finds. This is a highly recommended product, and it won't interfere with your current antivirus product.

    If after that, you still experience problems, let us know!

    In addition to the above, check to see if the drive needs to be defragmented.

    I believe the tutorial mentions it, but startup programs are a big drain, and going through your programs list and removing everything you don't use can only help.

    Check the disk for errors. Some disks just eventually fail. But it should honestly be fine to play any game on. It mostly just effects load times, not so much gameplay
