New laptop freezing

Posted 04 May 2013 - 07:49 AM

My 2 month old laptop has just today started freezing for a few seconds and when checking the task manager the disk usage is at 100%.

Sorry about the picture quality, ny laptop was freezing too much for me to get a decent picture!

That's not enough info for us to tell what is causing that. You need to find out what process is responsible for the excessive disk use. You can do that by examining the Disk tab in the Resource Monitor. (Link at the bottom of the Performance tab of the Task Manager.)

OK. Have you checked the box next to the top item and examined the Disk Activity? That tells you what files are being accessed by the process. Should give you some clues as to what is happening.

It probably isn't going to be this. But just before this happened my internet started playing up. My internet has sorted itself out and now the freezing on my laptop has to.

Thanks for your help but it seems to of sorted itself.

Honestly, if it were me, I would be frantically scanning everything for viruses. From your images, it seems a "svchost.exe" instance related to the network was responsible for this, and those kind of "background" processes are generally de-prioritized so they don't affect "foreground" activity. They shouldn't be making your system sluggish like this.
