I had a really frustrating day. I’m going to vent.
It started with the work PC not being able to run MS Word and iTunes at the same time. Tried to check task manager. After watching the cursor creep on the screen for about five minutes I finally got there and discovered 100% disk usage. Turned off Superfetch. Gained a tiny bit of performance. Typing was impossible, so turned off some automatic start thingies, and rebooted.
Waited for reboot.
Reboot completed about 10 minutes later.
Again 100% disk usage.
Opening Firefox caused the computer to hang.
Opening MS Edge was even worse.
Even now every half an hour or so, I get a slow cursor creeping across screen and half of the sentence I typed vanishes. My memory usage is at 60% and spiking, and I only have Firefox, Ms Word, and iTunes opened. This thing has 8GB. It should be able to run these 3 programs at the same time without a complete collapse. Disk and CPU usage graphs both look like the Alps.
Have ran antivirus. (I bolded it because people keep advising me to run it. :D) Everything passed with flying colors.
It’s like my computer just decided to throw its hands up and quit.
Did it update itself during the night and the update broke it? Did something burn out? ::shakes computer:: Fix yourself. I have stuff to do.
I shudder to think what will happen if I try to open Photoshop.
This is so frustrating.
