    Microsoft Windows 8.1 64 Bit


    Disk Usage 100% posts describe in detail with screen captures pinpointing the programs consuming disk resources. Norton was the problem for me 1 fourth of the time. The windows defrag and Tiwork were the problem 1/2 of the time. Letting the PC idle for an hour allowed the resource hogging application time to finish the task. 1/4 of the time an adware program slowed down my PC, and task manager and resource manager pinpointed the offending executable.

    I installed windows 7 and download steam and began downloading counter strike global offensive whenever I got half way it froze not responded and crashed like before. Now the problem persists again, most likely a costly internal hard drive problem, that sucks
