    Windows 8 disk showing 100% usage in task manager.Why so?

    Even when it's idle it shows 100%.
    What I did: Disabled start up programs which are not required.
    Increased page file min the same size of my ram and max the double of my ram.
    Performed error checking nothing found.
    Scanned for viruses.
    Still can't figure out why it's so.

    Even Windows server 2012 has same issue.

    I'm not sure if this would help - but if you have an anti-virus running (especially AVAST), try uninstalling it and see if it helps.

    Is your Task Manager setup to show the usage done by each running application? If not, open Task Manager -> View -> Select Columns. Once there, tick the "CPU Usage".

    This should enable you to see the usage by each app. Click "Show processes from all users" to get the complete list. You may click the CPU column so it'll sort the process ascending or descending as per the CPU usage.

    Report what's in there that's using the CPU all the time.

    Well, it could be Kaspersky then. At this time, what @[Prototype] suggested looks like the best thing to do.

    This sounds so much like memory leak to me. And if the bug as you're saying is experienced by many users, then certainly it is massive bug. Memory leaks makes your PC, a bloated, laggy device.AFAIK, most of the distro maintainers try to fix memory leaks at first, it's always been the primary priority. And, there could be plenty reasons for memory leaks - memory leaks from drivers, from OS stacks, maybe even from some application.

    Thanks for the information , for installing mint I have reinstalled windows 8 . when I open the task manager for first time it show 100% consumption some times but latter it goes down that's ok earlier I had lagging and programs not responding issue, lets see now how it works. Even though windows 8 is not the best but for some reason I like using it more than windows 7.
