My Hard Drive is always running at 100% no matter what. Any fixes?

Ask it to slow down, most humans can't even run at 100% for longer than a few seconds.

/s

Check task manager and see what is taking up the 100% disk usage.

also task manager should just tell you what program is using the most if you just look at the top and press the percentage

open task manager (which i'm sure you already know because how else would you know it's at 100%?) go through the list of running background programs and right click to end it, MAKE SURE IT'S NOT A SYSTEM TASK FIRST as it can cause major system instability or even crash your computer, but if you use win10 or 8, this should be relativly easy to do as the processes are all listed as programs, background processes (all of which can end), and system processes.
