Try this procedure to isolate the offending process:
Quote:
Task Manager:
Also, you can monitor the system for excessive resource consumption. To do this, open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar.
Then select the Processes tab.
Then select the "Show processes from all users" button (in the lower left)
Then select the View menu item, then select "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
Click OK to accept the changes.
Resize the Task Manager window so you can see the most of the columns.
Wait for the system to freeze.
Look at all of the columns to see if there's anything that looks excessively high - if so, let us know the Image name of the process.
FWIW - System Idle Process is supposed to have high CPU readings - anything else with high CPU readings is an issue.

It's possible.
But, if it slows down every 15 minutes - then the temperature would have to get overhot every 15 minutes. That's not likely on most systems.

At the top left of the Task Manager window are several choices (menu items). They are:

File Options View Help
Click on the one that says "View"
Then, click on the choice in the dropdown menu that says "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
