So, it all started after i had my nvidia drivers error "Nvidia windows kernel mode driver error". After this error windows started being really annoying and laggy. Usually it lags most when i turn on computer, it takes a lot of time to load files, and strange thing happens after i turn it on. Just a few seconds after windows loads pictograms on dekstop windows strangly loads them again... I checked my disk usage, it goes to 100% sometimes and when its at 100% windows getting laggy. Usually reinstalling windows helps, but i cant reinstall it atm, i got a lot of important stuff in it (and ya stupid me, i made one disk). So maybe any of you know a solution for this problem? i'll appreciate any help.

Im using windows 8. Sorry for my any english grammar mistake.

If it is being caused by the Nvidia driver, then uninstall it, delete the drivers and use the Standard VGA driver. Then download the WHLQ Nvidia driver, not beta, and re-install.

Also, have you checked for virus? Could also be hardware problem.
