One terabyte SSD with an 8GB of RAM running on Core i5 and system still lags... Opened task manager and found the culprits but what i cannot figure out is who the true villain is among the two of em. 🤔

    Firefox is not a problem. You have almost 6 Gigs more.

    Take a look at who uses the disk because disk access can cause severe lags when capped out (and yours is at 100%). (My bet: some windows service, probably update service downloading tons of updates)

    @Gregozor2121 That 100% reading i don't know what it is because i still have about 400GB of storage left.

    @bkwilliams That is manager by default

    @irene yes... but firefox was kinda eating more of my ram than cpu

    @bkwilliams sorting by name is useful because the most interesting programs are in the first group.

    @GiddyNaya it's not 100% storage, it's 100% utilized performance wise. Something is reading/writing a shitton on your ssd. Based on the fact that it is a SSD, it probably shouldn't do thst, so check out who's the true evil.
    If the task manager doesn't immediately spit it out, check the resources manager

    @GiddyNaya so? RAM consumption means nothing until RAM is full and active swapping begins.

    There was a bug on one of window's update that capped IO usage at 100% all the time.

    There is a \s somewhere here right?

    @irene don’t forget windows takes at least 2gb ram just idling.

    @sunfishcc anyways I see that your ram is only 77% full so it is not the case.

    Firefox is known for eating a bunch of RAM. But usually it doesnt slow u down much, except ure opening 40 tabs or sth
