Hello, i have been years reading in this forum, but i have never been a member, now i need your help!
I have a laptop (Asus Q304u) (Bought 6 months ago)
Specs:
Intel core i5 7200U 2.5GHz - 2.71GHz
RAM: 6 GB
64 bit windows 10 home
1000 gb Hard disk (Model: ST1000LM035-1RK172)
Asus page drivers

The past weeks my computer has been getting slower, specially after turning it on or coming from hibernation, it takes about half an hour for the pc to get usable. Sometimes it doesnt get better and takes a lot to open programs and in certain cases it also freezes and gets unresponsive so i have to force shut down. And when the computer turns on it takes about 20 minutes to get to home screen, sometimes it enters the "scanning disk for errors" screen before home screen. Also in task manager the Disk is always at 100% even with no programs open.
I have tried:
-Disk defrag
-Chkdisk comand (No errors found)
-Disabling the services (Superfetch, etc... )

Thank you for your time!

First check to make sure your Hard Drive isn't going bad using a HDD Health checker like Crystal Disk Info - you can download the basic version or even portable.

Have you done all the most recent Windows Updates?

Try disabling everything that is starting up with the computer. Go to CTRL + ALT + DELETE and then Start-up tab and disable anything that is enabled.

Next I would run a full Malware scan on your system. Things can get in without you ever downloading something. Check out Malwarebytes.com and use their free version.

If Malwarebytes freezes up your PC try using ADWCleaner (Also by Malwarebytes) https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

Also try and doing some maintenance with CCleaner

Let me know how that goes!
