I wonder if this might not be a hardware configuration issue. My EQ runs as admin and I don't currently have this issue. I am on Win10 1909. I have a combination of mechanical and solid state drives. EQ resides on an M.2 SATA drive all by itself. Win10 manages my virtual memory. I have 16GB of RAM and run six instances of EQ. Intel i7-7700k and 1070 GTX. I launch my sessions using NoPatch. I don't know what else to add except you may want to get some software that monitors which apps are accessing your drives.
