My computer is running at high levels of disk usage

Hello, daledoc1 told me to come here for a second opinion (the conversation is posted below)

 

https://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?/topic/174481-most-of-the-time-100-disk-is-being-used-any-ideas-how-to-fix-this/

 

As mentioned, I have tried several things, but I am still coming across 100% disk usage.

 

I have attached a new set of fresh logs below.

 

Also, I have skype enabled, do you want me to do anything with it? (I know it works through P2P)

 

Thank you in advanced for looking into this!

Hello,

    

 

They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll try to help your with your issue.

 

     

    

Before we start please read and note the following:

  • We're primarily oriented on malware removal here, so you must know that some issues just cannot be solved and you must be prepared for this. Some tools we use here will remove your browser search history, so backup your important links and all the files whose loss is unacceptable.
  • Note that we may live in totally different time zones, what may cause some delays between answers.
  • Don't run any scripts or tools on your own, unsupervised usage may cause more harm than good.
  • Do not paste the logs in your posts, attachments make my work easier. There is a More reply options button, that gives you Upload Files option below which you can use to attach your reports. Always attach reports from all tools.
  • Always execute my instructions in given order. If for some reason you cannot completely follow one instruction, inform me about that.
  • If I don't hear from you within 3 days from this initial or any subsequent post, then this thread will be closed.
:excl: I can't foresee everything, so if anything not covered in my instructions happens, please stop and inform me!

:excl: There are no silly questions. Never be afraid to ask if in doubt!

We won't support any piracy.

That being told, if any evidence of illegal OS, software, cracks/keygens or any other will be revealed, any further assistance will be suspended. If you are aware that there is this kind of stuff on your machine, remove it before proceeding!

The same applies to any use of P2P software: uTorrent, BitTorrent, Vuze, Kazaa, Ares... We don't provide any help for P2P, except for their removal. All P2P software has to be uninstalled or at least fully disabled before proceeding!

 

Failure to follow these guidelines will result with closing your topic and withdrawning any assistance.

Um, so I did the chkdsk and it got stuck on 11% for about 4 hours, but then I went to check on it and it was done but said about an error in starting up but that a restart would probably fix it.

Now that its on, I dont see any apparent differences.

Oh by the way, since your here, I was scanning my parents computer earlier (I have many times with malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware) but this time malwarebytes didnt find anything but SuperAntiSpyware said it found "Maleware.Trace". Is their anything extra I should do then let the program remove it?
