For some reason milkway was using 100% of hdd, making windows impossible to use. 10 minutes to log in or shut down windows.

I had to turn milkway project off.

Likely a one time issue. Was it downloading WU? Which version of Windows?

Windows 10. IT wasn't downloading, it was computing. 80% completed more or less from what I remember before turning it off.

I'm almost sure that it wasn't any work unit's fault. My HDD is failing, causing files to be corrupted. Probably, something happened to be saved on a bad sector and that caused windows to overload the HDD trying to read from a bad sector.
