I am on Win 10 64bit- Build 1803 with all updates .
Periodically when I am in the midst of something I hear the PC whirring and often what I am doing slows.
I originally thought that was just fan noise.
How can I tell if something is running in background (I'm assuming not an update)?
If so can I safely "stop it"?
I view Task Manager but that is as I have set its parameters.

.

there is allways something running in the background.
Win has various background tasks scheduled . Could also be winupdates , AV scans , other app updates , sync with cloud apps

best way is task manager = go into = resource manager
look at hard drive access
