Welcome. Worthy try: Un and re install Kaspersky. Uninstall > restart the computer > do routine disk maintenance such as defrag, disk cleanup, make sure Windows updates are installed > restart the computer > re install Kaspersky > update databases > restart again. Any better after that?

If still no go, please contact Tech Support: https://my.kaspersky.com/support/

a. Description of the issue.

c. GSI
It maybe because you have selected an automatic updates? Can you check on your settings?

Hello,

Product need verify the integrity of program files and AV enginee cache and load product resource such as GUI during every reboot and start PC, So it is inevitable to read and write disks. When the related activities stop, the occupancy of disk reads and writes will be reduced to minimum. If the occupancy persists, then there is a problem.

Regards.
