That doesn’t sound like a Citra issue, but more like a problem with your PC.

100% Disk Usage

This sounds like a virtual memory/swap file issue. Windows will use a swap file on your HDD if you are RAM starved. How much RAM does your computer have, and what is its usage % when this problem is occurring?

Friend, the pentium 3825u has 2 cores no 4;
the threads if 4 is different! The problem is in your pc NOT in your Citra; investigated in google because I have seen a problem rather linked to windows 10 where several people complained because certain programs saturated 100% of disk use.

in the first instance update your OS version Home to the PRO version!

There won’t be any change from a Pro Windows Version.
He just could open up the Task Manager and look at the applications which cause the 100% disk usage.
