I forgot to ask you to click on the down arrow to open the middle pane.  Please try it again.  

Since Chrome seems to be the major culprit let's try a second one with Chrome shut down.  Also give me a Latency Monitor summary with Chrome shut down.

MEASURED INTERRUPT TO USER PROCESS LATENCIES
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The interrupt to process latency reflects the measured interval that a usermode process needed to respond to a hardware request from the moment the interrupt service routine started execution. This includes the scheduling and execution of a DPC routine, the signaling of an event and the waking up of a usermode thread from an idle wait state in response to that event.

 REPORTED HARD PAGEFAULTS
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Hard pagefaults are events that get triggered by making use of virtual memory that is not resident in RAM but backed by a memory mapped file on disk. The process of resolving the hard pagefault requires reading in the memory from disk while the process is interrupted and blocked from execution.
 
NOTE: some processes were hit by hard pagefaults. If these were programs producing audio, they are likely to interrupt the audio stream resulting in dropouts, clicks and pops. Check the Processes tab to see which programs were hit.
 
Process with highest pagefault count:                 officeclicktorun.exe

In Chrome go to:

 

chrome://extensions/

 

Turn off all non-google extensions except Ublock Origin.

 

Restart Chrome, point it at google.com (and close any other tabs) , wait 1 minute then give me a new latency monitor summary and also a Task Manager screenshot like you just posted.

Chrome seems to be the problem though with the extensions turned off it is not quite as bad.  I started Chrome on my PC and it doesn't seem to use nearly as much Disk as yours:

 

disk.jpg

 

There are times when it jumps up to 400K for a second or two then it drops back.

 

I wonder if Chrome's own tool can help.  First let's make sure Chrome is uptodate and not in the middle of an upgrade.

 

In Chrome click on the three dots in the upper right then select Help => About Google Chrome

 

It should say (with a blue checkmark)

Google Chrome is up to date
Version 87.0.4280.66 (Official Build) (64-bit)

 

Now click on the 3 dots and then Settings then Advanced, then Reset and Cleanup then Cleanup Computer

(You can uncheck the box in front of Report Details to Google... if you like)

 

Click on Find.  The software_reporter_tool.exe will start to run and will take 5 - 10 minutes to complete.  Will probably report that it found nothing but it is worth a shot.  This tool runs on its own every week or so and can slow down your system a bit so you might want to turn it off:

 

https://www.askvg.co...ool-in-windows/

 

Methods 1, 2 & 5 are not reliable.  3 or 4 should do the trick.

 

Would you consider using a different browser like Edge or maybe Brave?  You might also try exporting your profile

https://smallbusines...file-79321.html

then resetting or reinstalling Chrome to see if that helps then reimport the profile.

Thank you for your help, I believe that my computer is a bit faster now even if it not that great.
I can't using something other than chrome beacause all my stuffs are on it.

But my disk usage is weird, sometimes it's 5% and for no reason a process takes 100% for a few seconds/minutes slowing everything on my computer
Do you think it could be an hardware issue?

I don't think it's hardware.  Some program is causing problems.  Right now it seems to be mostly Chrome related but since you say it comes and goes we might not have caught the problem.

If you could catch either a Process Explorer log or a screenshot of the Task Manager/Performance Monitor of the Disk when it happens that might solve the problem.

 

Most browsers will pick up your favorites and cookies the first time you run them so switching isn't a traumatic as you might think.  Edge is essentially a clone of Chrome so it works the same.  Brave is a new up and coming browser that has a built in adblocker.  Personally I use Firefox because it seems to put less load on the CPU and the network.  It does work a bit differently tho so there is a learning curve. 

 

Let's run MBAR and see if there is something hiding that we can't see in the logs:

Just click on Download, Save the file then right click and Run As Admin.  Then follow the directions.

 

Let's also get a benchmark and see if that tells us anything:

Click on Free Download.  Save the file then right click and Run As Admin.  Close all programs and pause your antivirus before starting.


When it finishes it will open a browser.  Copy the URL and paste it into a Reply.

It's not just 1 program that uses all my disk, it's a random one on my computer like system.exe, chrome.exe or some windows process and for no reason it takes 100% disk.

Benchmark shows your Hard drive is very slow. 

 

First make sure you have the latest version of

Intel® Rapid Storage Technology as this sits between your CPU and the hard drive.

 

https://downloadcent...r?product=55005

 

Get the SetupRST.exe Download.  Save then right click and Run As Admin.

 

Rerun the Benchmark and see if the hard drive looks better.  If not then

 

Get the Western Digital

Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows

 

https://support.wdc....spx?lang=en&p=3

 

Download then right click and Extract All Extract.  Right click on WinDlg_v1_37.exe and Run As Admin.  Run the quick check first.  If it fails then run the long or extended test (will take hours so you may want to let it run while you sleep)

If the quick test passes then you do the long or extended test.

We can also check your hard drive to see if it is up to speed using

HD Tune

https://www.lifewire...-review-2624561


Actual download is at:


http://www.hdtune.co.../hdtune_255.exe


Download, Save, right click and Run As Admin.  Run the Benchmark test and report your min, max & average transfer times.  Ideally the graph would be flat or slightly tilted to the right.  On a bad drive you will see sharp drops.  The fewer programs running at the same time the better.  Pause your anti-virus.

Here are the two drives from my PC.  The first one is the C: which is an SSD.  The second one is my D: which is a Western Digital Black drive.

As you can see your drive does not look healthy even tho it passed the extended test.  You might try again with the antivirus paused and all other programs closed and a third time after searching for

msconfig

hit Enter then click on

Diagnostic Startup

OK then reboot then rerun the test.  (You will need to rerun msconfig and check Normal Startup then OK and Reboot in order to get back to normal)

 

 

 

It's odd but Speccy claimed the drive was an SSD but when I google the part number it shows as a Western Electric Blue and the benchmark agrees that it is not an SSD.  If it's not an SSD then that would explain why the hard pagefaults are slowing it down so much.  Pagefaults are caused when it runs out of RAM and has to store things on the hard drive.  Per Speccy you have a second empty RAM slot so it should be possible to add one more 8 GB RAM stick like you already have.  I would check to make sure there really is a free slot before ordering more.  Apparently you just have to remove the bottom panel to get to the slots (and to change out the drive if it comes to that).  This isn't for the exact model but should be close:

 

I use an old credit card instead of a guitar pick.

 

You currently have:

Size    8192 MBytes
                    Manufacturer    Kingston
                    Max Bandwidth    DDR4-2666 (1333 MHz)
                    Part Number    ACR26D4S9S8ME-8
