I had this issue where hard drive was on 10 and it was so bad that i wasnt able to do anyhting on the comp.

so i did a fresh install and all seemed to be well again for a few weeks and now its started again! It isnt just one hard drive either it will be one then the other but never both at the same time.

before the reinstall the process would always show 'system' but since reinstall and it happens its been comodo. you might think it innocent enough maybe it is carrying out needed tasks. thar is until i decided to uninstall comodo today and it still happened. the process seems to be whatever it can find/ wharever is running.

I went into safe mode tho and it doesnt happen.

i ran ccleaner and search and destroy and they didnt find anything.

what should i try next?

i have a couple of windows upadates to install but for some reason i cant access the server it just stays stuck at 0%

What does that mean? ("...was on 10...") -- what was on "10"? Where did you see this/how do you know this?

If you think there is a problem with the HDD, run SeaTools for DOS, LONG test - https://www.sysnative.com/forums/har...agnostics.html

Tentatively; it seems to be fixed now after running the above programs and windows update.

SeaTools for DOS is a diagnostic program and does not fix anything.

My guess would be that one of the Windows Updates did the trick.

Good luck to you.

Actually @jcgriff2, the Seatools Long test Fixes bad sectors, much like Check Disk.
