100% disk usage
Hi, I earlier today noticed my computer running really slow, taking forever just to open the browser (chrome), or any other app or folder. In task manager, I saw that my disk usage was at 100%. Digging down I found Norton Security Suite was consuming the major portion of this usage. I also checked and noticed that most of the activity was the disk being written to (2-3 Mb/sec) with reading only in kilobytes. There was no scan being performed or any other activity I could discover being performed by NSS (Norton Security Suite) so I have no idea what all the writing was all about. After reading a lot of people saying they had the same problem and techs saying wipe your drive and do a clean boot,etc. etc., to no avail I remembered that earlier today I added safe web and safe search to my browser, Google chrome, and soon after that is when the 100% disk usage started. I removed both and within 2 minutes disk usage dropped below 10%. I don't know if something is skewed on my computer or what, but after reading all those other people stressing over the same problem, I thought I would proffer my own experience, maybe someone will profit from these words, maybe not, just putting it out there.
