After Window 8 upgrade system running very slow, Disk usage 100%

I had window 7 and I upgrade to window 8, I found my system running very very slow and on task manager disk usage is around 100%. I did following steps to resolved this issues, now disk usage is 5 to 10% when ideal.

  • Press windows + R key 
  • Select the option "Control Panel"  > "System and Security" > "System".
  • Click on "Advanced system settings".
  • Under performance, click on "Settings".
  • Go to Advanced tab, Under Virtual memory, click on "Change".
  • un-check "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" check box.
  • Select your windows drive (where OS is installed).
