Pavalion 590 Disk usage 100% cant operate

HP Recommended
Pavillion 590-P0066
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, our office got this pc last year. After the covid break when I got back to the office last week, my pc is running 100% disk usage. I can still log in but the computer is too slow to do anything. It takes about 3 minutes to get to the log in window and after that, I can barely open anything. I got lucky once to open the task manager and saw the disk usage is 100%. I am not running any software on my computer and there are not too many files in there.

3) If the updates are available, click on install and restart the computer.


Step 2 HP Support Assistant Updates -
