Is this sudden problem and everything was working fine before? It's possible a Windows 10 update is to blame, they seem to be having some difficulties with it still. Maybe run a full scan with malwarebytes.

Check startup programs and disable anything that isn't truly needed. Does the HDD light blink fast or indicate it is in heavy use? Try temporarily disabling your anti-virus.

Nothing is overloaded and the light is not blinking at all. All I have is windows defender.
