I always turn my computer off at night and start it in morning. That morning when i started it i noticed it was very slow and unresponsive in opening programs. I checked system performance and noticed disk and memory was almost at 98% , which would explain why so unresponsive. Funny thing if you leave it on long enough it starts working normally and disk and memory go back down to 40% memory and 1% disk , everything is well at this point. if i leave it on its fine and works flawless but if i reboot it starts over. It has me puzzled. I have done the following things to figure this out. #1 done a complete virus and malware scan. Everything is clean. #2 Ran a Dism to check health and no corruption was found. #3 seem to be up to date on drivers ,etc. Any help is appreciated to figure this out.
