Have you used it? Will the other 2 do better?

Yes I know it… there’s no comparison between it and what I use/reccomend.


Thanks. I will give them a whirl!

Which one out of the 2?

I got a SSD.

Therefore, correct me if I am wrong, I have disabled all defragment and don't defrag at all as you should defrag a SSD.

Just a reminder people… always go to a newly installed program’s options and disable:

1. Load at Windows startup
2. Update automatically

Or you’ll end up with a clean but still slow machine!

I went to these programs options (settings) and they don't have a LOAD at WINDOWS startup setting to deactivate

The CHECK FOR UPDATES option is checked WEEKLY, so that can't be all that bad if it is only once a week. Or should it still be deactivated?

I would change that to “never” because…

When you enable “auto updates” programs have to have a way of CHECKING the time so they’ll either insert a system service which always delays the loading of Windows at startup, or make an entry in the Windows scheduler.

Either way it means resources wasted on a daily basis just to keep checking against the time to see if a job should be kick-started.

Now if you can imagine having 10 such programs each having to keep checking the time and/or reacting to it all day… you’ll have less and less system resources (memory and processor) available for running software.

All this auto-shit is what bogs systems down.

Understood.

Gosh, now I have to check all my programs and change them all to never unless there is a easier and better way.

A quick way to disable all the auto-load stuff is to type “MSCONFIG” in the search field and press ENTER, and then click the “startup” tab to disable stuff.

It tells me to go to task manager.

There, I can right click and disable stuff.

Oh OK...it must've been re-arranged in Win10.
