Irony of all Ironies, after all this time of trying to take over the browser world with IE (and Edge) and getting its hands burned for anti-competitive practices, plus hefty fines from the EU. 

I guess they have to have something for new systems to browse with until the user downloads or installs their own choice.  I guess they will save a lot of money in this policy.

Need a lot more information before any one can even hazard a guess what the problem could be.

You seem to forget that I'm not in front of your computer.
I have no clue what's running on your computer, what the past history is of the computer,
what version of the programs and operating system are etc, etc, etc.
This sounds like something that needs some hands on cleaning and fine tuning.
Not something that can be done via trial and error.
Normally this is accomplished in some basic steps.
1 Update - Operating System and all programs
2 Clean up - Get rid of all old stuff no longer used and eliminate any unneeded programs that run at startup
3 Speed up. - Windows offers an excellent speedup ( optimization ) utility - Windows Performance Toolkit

i need help my laptop is running on a 500 GB HHD and 4GB ram

but most of the time the Disk at task manager is running at 100% and it makes the computer slow can you help fix t?

Asked in isolation there is no way to guess as to what the problem might be. 

For your Disk to be running at 100% something would have to be running to generate this activity, are there any programs/processes in the Task Manager also using a lot of CPU % ?

How much RAM is being used out of your 4GB (which for windows 10 I would say is possibly on the low side) ?
This could also be associated with Page File usage, if RAM used is high, memory blocks will constantly be being switched out and written to the page file.

Do you have a Graphics Card or do you have a Graphics chip on your motherboard ?
If it is a Graphics Chip on the motherboard, that could be sharing or have say 512MB allocated to that.

So a lot more information on your system is required to really do what appears a simple question justice.  It may also be best to actually create your own new topic as it is likely to get buried in this very large and varied topic.
