    How does cortana slow down your computer? I can't imagine it uses that much memory sitting by itself doing anything.

    That's what I was going to suggest.


    An explanation I have is being particularly active on his system. Don't quote me on it though.

    My windows search thing uses up tons of my disk space even when it's not doing anything.

    Is it possible you have windows complementary telemetry active? That can cause massive disk usage but disguise itself as other programs taking disk.

    I know this is a joke, but windows 10 is way better then windows 8.1.

    Windows 7 is better then both imo.
