I am facing a weird problem now a day. My system is gradually decreasing in performance due to high disk activity from system process and perform.exe.

Whenever the high disk activity occurs, my RAM usage drops from approximately 1.6GB to just 600MB. I don not know the reason for this error but I am facing this since last about two weeks and could not find any solution yet.

Also this high hard disk activity problem will occur anytime whether I am playing some game, browsing or doing nothing.

  • First of all I will suggest replacing your RAM. Then check out how many programs you are running in the background. As you said that high disk error occurs even you are doing nothing. That simply means that either you are running a number of programs in the background or one or two heavy software like some antivirus or anti-spam. So try closing all background utilities.
  • Also try to turn some of windows features off and monitor the usage of the system, when it is idle and under load. If the problem is occurring due to hard disk then try using some good quality software to defrag your hard disk. Run a full virus scan to see whether your system is infected with some kind of mal-ware. And not only for virus but running a scan for windows registry and disk cleanup will also help find and resolve the problem.
  • Also how old is your system? Sometimes errors also occur due to old one or more hardware. Make sure all your hardwares are compatible with the latest drivers and softwares you are running on your system. Also compatibility of motherboard and other hardwares like RAM, Processor are also necessary.
  • Try changing your PSU because if you are using a low quality power supplier then there are chances that it can easily destroy your build with unstable/insufficient power. RAM can also cause instability issues. Check your task manager to see what processes are loading your usage percentages.

Press "ctrl+alt+del" key to open the Task Manager. Then go to process tab. in the process tab, you will see all the files that are running in your system. end the process of the file that you do not need or you are not using like rundll32.exe, and files which uses more than 10,000 kilobytes. Especially if you have the Roxio Creator installed. It has a features that monitors the harddrive. This feature should be disabled. 

Solution #2

Go to Control Panel, then look for Programs. Under Programs, click the Uninstall Program if you are using Windows 7. For Windows XP, open your control panel then go to add/remove program. 

So when you are in the Uninstall Program or Add/remove Program, you will see all the programs that are installed in your computer. Uninstall all programs that you do not need. 

Solution #3

If you want to know if your computer has a hidden program that is running in your system, you can check this website Download Link and download the RRT – Remove Restriction Tool. This is a freeware that detects hidden running programs that restrict you to disable hidden running program.
