Hello, so this issue has been going on for some time now.
My whole computer starts lagging very hard when updating or downloading a game from steam, my wallpaper lags, steam lags, other programs lag and even my mouse movement is very choppy. I'm not running out of space, I have 400GB left on my HDD and 90GB on my ssd and my specs are Ryzen 1300x, gtx 1060 3GB Gigabyte OC, 8gb of DDR4 2400
Task manager doesn't show that anything is at 100%, the CPU is at 50%, ram at about 70% and disk at about 20%. This didn't use to happen but now it does and it's very annoying.

Edit: Lagging for some reason stops when I limit the download speed low, like REALLY low. When the speed is limited to 512kbs, the lag stops, but that is too slow and before I could easily download games at no speed limit.
