Solved: Windows 8 disk usage at 100 percent Problem

Each time you start your Windows 8 Computer (PC), it freezes, hangs, and temporarily crashes, and disk usage meter from the task manager rises to 100% quickly

Solution 1: 
Increase virtual memory. 
Make it equivalent to your RAM size for the initial size and twice of the initial size in maximum size and make sure you have the same amount of free space in your hard drive in each drive.

To do this, follow the following steps:

1. Go to Control PanelAll control panel items > System
2. Click on Advanced system settings
3. Under Performance, click on settings
