    Is it possible that Kaspersky is "actively" doing a system scan? How long since you installed Kaspersky, and did you allow enough time for it do a complete scan of all your files? If yes, I would remove Kaspersky (verify that disk activity stops) then report back to this forum.

    You may want to try Malwarebytes. Many here recommend this product (they have a free version too).
