'system' seems a bit vague, is there a way to diagnose this more to narrow it down? or alternatively does anyone have a hunch what it may be.
In Task Manager, select the Performance tab, and then push the Resource Monitor button to open a second window.
On the second window you'll now see tabs for OVERVIEW, CPU, MEMORY, DISK and NETWORK. If you select any of these, you'll get a complete DETAILS presentation of what processes are using what resources. You can resize/maximize the window and spread the columns for better visibility, so that you can see everything.
You can also click repeatedly on the various column headings, to sort the rows presented into ascending or descending sequence based on the data values in that column.
You should easily be able to see what's doing what... who's reading/writing to disk, who's using low-level CPU amounts continuously, who's using memory, etc.
