If BOTH Antivirus Found Nothing
After repairing my computer that lagging and CPU utilization up and down, That view was noticed by me inside Windows Explorer got changing. The difference obviously noticeable especially on ‘Computer’ folder. Usually the amount is showed by the folder of free space of every partition. But it’s gone. Turns out the problem is the folder-view mode is no longer ‘Tilthe’ view as typical, but it changed to ‘Extended Tile’ view and ‘Tilthe’ view option was lacking. I like the ‘Tile’ view since I can monitor the free space on the hard drive easily by displaying graphs, which partition includes less or more data especially.
My initial try to recreate the ‘Tile’ view is ‘Restore Defaults’ at every tab under Folder and search options. Still, the ‘Tile’ view didn’t arrive. Go to this site, download the number “1. TO REVIVE Default Folder Templates for everyone Folders”. It was a bat file, run it then.
Immediately following the bat finished working, I checked the view option inside Windows Explorer and voila! The ‘Tile’ view successfully restored. Yesterday, my lovely computer running on Windows 7 acted very strange. I pointed out that the hard drive led indication turns on and off in persistently since booting. I experienced there has to be something wrong. After the desktop loaded, longer time than typical, the effect became more clear. Mouse move web page scrolling was lagging.

My first assumption, it was infected by virus. THEREFORE I check with installed AVG Windows and antivirus Defender. The scanning itself took a long time really, no virus found. My assumption then changed. If both antivirus found nothing, the nagging problem must be something else, it could be a hardware issue 🙁 As usual, to recognize any nagging problem, I went to Event Viewer.
Immediately I ran scandisk for everyone partition in the hard drive and restart the computer. Scandisk will usually solve “light” hard drive mistakes. Unfortunately, after scanning twice even, I had not been lucky. The problem was intact. So, Google help me finding some forum with people having some nagging problem. It appears likely that my hard disk drive got bad sector or similar. People in a community forum suggest scan with hard disk drive diagnostic tool, provided by hard disk produce. Since my hard disk drive is Seagate ST3500418AS, so the diagnostic tool must be available in the Seagate website. Short tale, Seagate has a diagnostic tool called SeaTools.
For Windows, there are two versions; DOS setting and Windows setting. The tool is loaded in bootable CD image, so you need to burn off it to a blank CD. Since I didn’t have any empty CD, luckily I found ways to set up SeaTools to a USB flash drive. Google “install stools on us” to discover a bundle of SeaTools image and utility to produce a bootable USB.
The teaching how to set up SeaTools on USB usually offered by the web sharing it. Short story (again), before operating SeaTools from the USB, I have to make a backup of the broken hard drive just in case SeaTools can cause data lost. Although I didn’t backup all the info, day with hard disk drive in such condition the backup process got a half.
I also suggest you strongly to make a backup of your data first. After back-up, it’s time for SeaTools to work. Insert the bootable USB drive, SeaTools will load, select the target drive, and do a a basic test. If the basic tests fail, go with Long test. On my 500-GB drive, it had taken around one and half hour to complete scanning and 2 errors found. The repairing process itself ran “semi automatically”, click repair just, Ok, etc. After the scanning and restoring finished finally, I restarted the computer, and the nagging problem had opted.
CPU usage along, computer lagging it turns out a hard drive problem. Use a hard drive diagnostic tool to USB drive, make a backup of data, run the diagnostic tool. I always wonder what is my computer doing when it takes very long time to shut down? Incidentally I came across a good brief description on reddit. The computer does down a lot of things when you shut. This post will cover as many as I could think of.
One of the simplest and most important is due to storage. The computer has to ensure that whatever needs to be written to disk, is written to drive. Unless you do this, you could end up with invalid or corrupt files. If you’d like greater detail than that, you are going to need to take a few years of computer science at a college level.
