This question already has an answer here:
My system is currently very slow, and I'm fishing for reasons why this might be..
System is : W10x64 Pro, i5-4460 CPU @3.2GHz, 8GB PC3-12800 @ 1600MHz, 500GB SATA HDD.
Disk C: has less than 10% free space, and from what I see in Task Manager, disk usage is my main problem. From time to time the computer freezes, and I have to wait 10-15 minutes for it to release.
Just now I noticed I have 16GB of committed memory, I have no idea why. Might it be that the system is forced to write data on the HDD all the time and this is why it is so slow ?

EDIT. My Paging file is 8GB which explains the committed memory size.
Should I disable it and see if the RAM is enough for my usage .. I need a solution on how to get the system to work normally.
