How to disable automatic maintenance in Windows 8.1
If you are using Windows 8 or 8.1, you probably noticed that the system starts the process of automatic maintenance without any notice and in an arbitrary way.
This process takes a lot of memory and if the hardware configuration of your computer average or even below, you will notice huge delays in performing simple tasks. If you have a powerful PC, shouldn’t be a problem and most likely you never even noticed process. However, if I’m wrong, perhaps you would like to resolve this issue.
The need for auto maintenance is justified: during this process, the system checks for Windows updates, defragmenting the hard drive and scans for viruses. Often, however, this process significantly reduces the performance of your computer.
Perhaps these tasks you prefer to do yourself and with the help of third-party software. Thus, to solve this problem you can by disabling the automatic maintenance process. Let’s see how to do it.
1. On the keyboard press Win + R to open a Run dialog. Next, enter the command taskschd.msc and press Enter to open the «task Scheduler».
2. In the left menu, go to «Library […] > Microsoft > Windows > TaskScheduler».
3. Right-click the mouse on the task «Regular Maintance» (see screenshot) and in the context menu select «Disable».
Now automatic maintenance will no longer bother you, but on their system you will have to take care of yourself.
