you can't really solve this. Try to remove as much IO stress (Software) from the PC or replace the drive (old HDD) by a SSD.

[16:38] Searching for stand-alone Windows Updates and Hotfixes
subscribe to the RSS Feeds:
and the Quality of the GDR updates is also bad. The last months a lot of update were pulled because of issues (this month Silverlight, KB3004394 (December 2014 update for Windows Root Certificate Program in Windows) and Rollup-Update for Exchange Server 2010 SP3 (KB2986475)). So the testing was not as good as it should. Also an Office Update causes macro issues
[29:36] Disk thrashing and what is difference between disk thrashing and disk I/O.
Run Resmon and look if the disk Queue at Init is > 10. this is bad and Shows HDD slowdowns
btw, the ntdebugging Team wrote a blog post about disk perf:
Windows8-RT MSU updates target Version 6.2 (Windows 8, 2012) only, so they don't work in Windows 10 which is internally Version 6.4.

EMET5 is already hacked, so it may not protect you all the time:
[08:42] Windows Performance Counters for Hard Drive Health
Gov, you should look for a SSD Update for your 840EVO. It has perf issues when reading data which haven't be touched for a long time:
[13:28] Windows 8/8.1 File Explorer thumbnail creation
I was able to recover some pictures with a repair tool to VGA Resolution. It is better compared to the thumbnails.
[18:38] Leaner Windows?
build a new Windows Embedded Standard 7/8 Image and include what you want.
In 8.1 the Team followed my advice to kill VGA drivers from the image. It made no sense to store AMD drivers in DriverRepository if the tablet only has an Intel HD chip.
I hope this gets extended in 10 to get more "drivers on demand" like the "features on demand" feature of Windows 8/8.1
And I saw in Windows 10 that the foundation package is divided into even more smaller packages.

[11:58] Fixing (System File Checker) SFC /scannow errors related to corrupted files
In Windows 8/8.1 the file CNBJ2530.DPB very often. Sfc can't restore the file. Under WinVusta/7 there was a tool called checksur (which was updated several times per year) and it included several files and could restore the corrupted files if it has the good file in it. In some cases the tool doesn't have the good file and it was also not able to fix it. I made a request to the servicing team to allow downloading missing files instead of adding them to a large download. So this was added with the DISM /RestoreHealph command in WIndows 8/8.1. Here it downlaods the missing/corrupted files.
The CNBJ2530.DPB corruption is an issue which Microsoft currently investigates. On the internal systems they also found this corruption, but the owning team has no idea why this happens.
[20:02] What is C:\Windows\WinSxS\TIworker.exe and why is it eating my CPU?
This TiWorker is also used to cleanup WinSxS. In 8.1 (and 8 with a Servicing stack update) the idle maintenance task compresses not used files into diffs to reduce the WinSxS size. This calculations cause a lot of CPU usage when you don't run this regulary. So let it run and enjoy more FREE space on your drive.

[08:12] WinDirStat performance on a SSD
simply use a better tool called TreeSizeFree. Starting with Version 3 it reads the data fom the MFT which is extremely fast.
"TreeSize Free now uses the master file table (MFT) for scanning local NTFS drives to improve the performance especially on HDDs. The MFT is only accessible if TreeSize is started as administrator."

Connected Standby is not available when the Hyper-V role is enabled
[06:05] Lots of small JPG's in localappdata folder on Windows 8.x, can they be deleted?
hopefuly the disk cleanup can do this in the next Windows Version
